What you'll do

This experience is for riders with little to no experience We have another experience for those that are experienced. As soon as you arrive you’ll jump right into the action, supported and encouraged but everyone on the yard. We will check you have a hi-viz and riding hat before you get on your horse/pony and then going out with the trek leader to discover the wonderful surroundings! The route we take depends on the time of year, weather and other events that may be in the area. There are plenty of opportunities to get pictures and the trek leader will tailor the hack to suit the ability of the riders. There is a wide range of bird life to be seen, including sightings of a golden eagle recently, and other wildlife. We can’t guarantee what you’ll see as it’s wildlife... We can guarantee you’ll love the surroundings though.

Iain

I’m Yard Manager at Haughhead Stables and I love to share my knowledge and love of horses with all! I find peace and tranquility in my local and surrounding area. The variety of natural habitat, fauna and wildlife that can be seen as well as being able to spend time with horses is brilliant. We don’t have the ‘standard’ trails around; we are able to get right into wildlife and have fantastic views and riding right on our doorstep. The stables are well established and featured as one of the top one-hundred attractions in Scotland to visit. We are mainly a family run Stables and no one is paid whilst there (we all have day jobs). All of our Trek leaders are very experienced riders and very used to working with riders from all backgrounds and abilities. We are fully insured, licensed and vet checked.
