The location

Situated within the Dyfi Biosphere close to the market town of Machynlleth in Mid Wales, Carreg Dressage is an organic farm registered with the Soil Association and is in a designated Environmentally Sensitive Area.

Nestling within 96 acres of idyllic countryside, nicknamed  “The Secret Valley “ Carreg Dressage has outstanding facilities, as well as a proudly sustainable way of working.

We feel that our location and setup here is positive for the health of the land, which in turn makes for happy horses, staff and riders. We hope you enjoy it here too.
