Martin Clunes opens new route in Wales

A new route which allows riders to explore Wales from north to south and east to west has been launched by the British Horse Society.

The Great Dragon Ride, which was opened by the society’s president Martin Clunes at Margam Country Park near Port Talbot, features a 293-mile trail which can also be enjoyed by walkers and cyclists.

Speaking at the launch, Martin said: "This is a fabulous way to get out and about and enjoy the countryside with your horse. A lot of horse riders get bored of using the same old routes, so to have the opportunity to explore in this way is wonderful.

"It is also great news for Welsh tourism. Riders will be able to bring their horse and stay along the route, which will undoubtedly create opportunities for local businesses."

BHS Senior Executive (Access), Heather Clatworthy, said: "The commitment and dedication of our volunteers and staff to this project, which has been several years in the making, is humbling. Their hard work has provided riders, walkers and cyclists with some excellent routes across Wales."
