What connects our members, who come from every walk of life is their love of horses and their appreciation for things natural and country life. Quite a few of our members don’t even ride, but they recognise the sentiment echoed by Sir Winston Churchill when he said “There is something about the outside of a horse which is good for the inside of a person”, and that is why they love coming up to see the horses and watching the riders having fun.
Suitable for al beginner riders agaed 5 and over. This one hour introducory session combines time spent in the sand paddock learning the basics followed by a gental walk around the surrounding scenic woodland.
These are 30 minute lead rein sessions designed as an introduction to riding for children aged 4 to 7 years. They will go for a gental walk in the woods where they can start to learn some of the basic skills.
Hacking sessions through the surrounding Scottish woodlands are regularly scheduled for riders confident in walk and rising trot. More bexpreienced riders can also book onto a walk/trot/canter hack.
We provide proffessional and friendly riding tuition for all abilities from beginners to advanced - ages 5 and up.
If you have ridden inthe past and would like to take up the reins again, the first step is to book an assessment lesson.
