DARKY DALE FOREST STABLES is set in a beautiful location in the forested hills between Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys in Mid Wales, almost equidistant between Knighton and Craven arms and Ludlow.



The stables are situated in the most idyllic forestry setting allowing customers to enjoy miles of off road riding around the forest with long grass tracks for those who fancy a gallop. Gina Collinson and her qualified staff have a wealth of experience in tuition of all aspects of horse riding and related activities. As well as trekking from her back door she is installing a manege which will be floodlit so as to extend tuition hours when required. There are a good selection of horses and ponies ranging from 10hh to 17hh so there is something for everyone. All the horses have been trained by Gina and her team to ensure that you have a fabulous riding experience to remember. They offer a variety of riding experiences from 30 minute treks to all day pub rides, lessons, childrens pony days and horse shares so everyones desires can be catered for at Darky Dale Forest Stables.


Self Catering holidays

We will be hiring out our 6 birth static caravan with wrap around balcony and hot tub this summer. It is situated in our private valley amidst the forestry looking over a large pond, paddocks and forestry all around. There is direct access to miles off off road tracks including footpaths, bridleways and professional mountain bike tracks installed by pearce cycles. The accommodation will be self catering but will include a welcome pack and is fully equipped. It will be offered for a minimum of two nights stay. Well behaved horses and dogs will be welcome. Horses can use a stable or will have use of a paddock in view of the holiday home. Hay, straw and hard feed if needed can be purchased. (please see the holiday livery page for horse livery prices)you will be able to join our treks or events or have lessons with 20% discount or you can explore the countryside on your own horse with a map. You can ride or walk to two local pubs in bucknell. We have a kennel for your dogs to use if you wish to go out and about without them. The holidays will run each year from 1st April until the 31st October.
