Hiking with Welsh Mountain pack ponies as companions trekking the old green lanes, bridleways and drovers roads through the Radnor Hills and across the wilds of the Cambrian Mountains of Mid Wales. ABOUT HOOFTREK Hooftrek have a small herd of semi feral Welsh Mountain ponies trained to carry overnight camping equipment. Through this pack pony initiative Hooftrek aim to raise the profile of the feral herds living on the uplands of Wales to continue their presence in the Welsh hills which is currently seriously in decline. Hooftrek have been working with reputed 'horse whisperer' John Jones to learn Natural Horsemanship techniques for training the Hooftrek Herd. This is a gentle and respectful approach, allowing each pony the time he or she needs to gain confidence in each element of life as a pack pony. By training and equipping the ponies as pack animals Hooftrek hope to give them a purpose - and a therefore a value - as companions for visitors trekking the old green lanes, bridleways and drovers roads through the Radnor Hills and across the wilds of the Cambrian Mountains of Mid Wales. THE RADNOR HILLS. CAMBRIAN MOUNTAINS & MYNDD EPPYNT The Radnor Hills and Cambrian Mountains are vast, beautiful stretches of countryside that you have immediate access to from Hooftrek HQ. The trails lie between the English border with Mid-Wales and the Welsh Coast. These trails follow one of the few unspoilt hidden gems of landscapes. You can often walk all day with your only trail mates being the sheep, buzzards, field fares, red kites and the majestic little herds of wild Welsh Mountain ponies.
