Horse Riding and Pony Trekking

Pony Trekking or horse riding in Scotland is a great way to experience the Scottish countryside and there are many riding schools and stables with horses for hire. Riding is classified in three ways: pony trekking, hacking and trail riding.

Pony Trekking is suitable for both novices and more experienced riders who wish to travel at a leisurely pace and enjoy the Scottish scenery. Ponies are usually the native Highland Pony which is strong, gentle and very sure-footed.

Hacking is for experienced riders who wish to go for a short ride, from one to three hours.

Trail Riding is also for the experienced rider. Horses used are fit and capable of maintaining a brisk pace over a variety of terrain. When booking this type of ride don't over-estimate your riding ability. You should be fit and have a full riding kit.
