Day One:

There are several ways to reach our riding centre in Scotland. You can either fly into Glasgow or Edinburgh where we can arrange a transfer (both 40mins), you can get the train to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Motherwell or Carstairs, or you can make your own way there by car. The local town is an easy 5 minute walk away so don't worry if you won't have a car. 

Arrive this afternoon/evening, riding will commence tomorrow morning. All meals are table-served in the on-site Bistro dining room. Evenings can be spent in the comfy lounge, your luxury bedroom with free WiFi, Egyptian cotton bedding and towels, complimentary tea and coffee, flat screen TV with DVD and small gym and cinema, or you can explore the local area.

Day Two:

After breakfast riding will commence with an introductory lesson. After a short assessment you will be allocated a horse suitable for your size and experience and your journey of discovery will begin. This afternoon you will be enjoying a picturesque hack along bridleways and quiet country lanes.

The content of your break will be tailored to suit your riding levels and you will discuss this upon arrival with your instructor. You will ride for up to four hours each day and this is usually a mixture of lessons and hacking out depending on your riding ability (day 2 & 3). Tuition and hacking out are usually intermixed with other riders to give a good balanced holiday. 

All of the instructors are highly experienced and hold the British Equestrian Tourism Certificate as well as a BHS instructors certificate. 

Day Three:

After breakfast you will be enjoying the same riding plan as yesterday with a lesson followed by a hack.
