About your host

I've been living and riding in Dalbeattie for over 25 years and have a good knowledge of the forest tracks and best places to ride. We'll hopefully spot some local wildlife as we travel and will aim to find the best spots for photo opportunities.

What we’ll do

We'll meet at Dalbeattie Forest, you'll bring your horse and riding equipment then we'll set off to explore the forest tracks. The pace will be lesiurely allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the peacefulness of the forest and hopefully spot a red squirrel or a deer. I'm happy to give advice on map reading to help you follow out route (please bring your own OS Map if you wish to do this).

What else you should know

I'll be riding my connemara pony, Charlie. He is a great trail horse and very sensible, he will be happy to lead the way or follow behind depending on your horse preference.

What to bring

Your own horse
Riding kit including tack and hard hat (body protector optional)
Map if you want to follow our route

Where you'll be
