About Us


Gorswen Riding school was started by Mrs Alice Nolan Jones. Over 40 years ago Mrs Jones had moved to Wales from Ireland as a young woman and married Huw Jones who was farming Gorswen as had his father before him.

Mrs Jones had a love for horses so combining that love with her business brain she developed Gorswen. She had the foresight to build an indoor school.

Soon afterwards Alice Jones combined forces with her daughter in law Helen and Helen developed the stud side standing her beautiful stallion Winston, a Cleveland x thoroughbred.

Over the last ten years, Gorswen has gone back to its roots and is again a riding school. Alice’s son, Ken Nolan Jones is the proprietor of the locally, popular riding school.
