This luxury equestrian centre and hotel located between Glasgow and Edinburgh has earned a great reputation over the past 28 years for quality unaccompanied children’s horse riding holidays, providing terrific fun packed breaks for children aged between 8 and 16 years old. Here the aim is to give children the time of their lives remembered for years to come, with careful attention to safety and round the clock 24hr adult supervision.
Children’s’ breaks consist of a mixture of tuition and fun things to do on horseback including riding to music, picnic rides, games sessions, jumping and bareback riding plus much more.
