Frequently asked questions

I am a complete beginner rider, can I book a trek?


Absolutely, we cater for all levels and you do not need any previous riding experience before coming to us for a trek. You will be mounted on one of our super horses and we will be here to guide you.




I am not a beginner rider, will I be able to canter?


It’s great that you are keen to ride at a faster pace. We have hacks that are for experienced riders only.




What age do you need to be to go on a trek?


We cater for ages from 10 years +.

Beginners will be on a lead rein




I would love to come trekking but I am nervous and only want to walk


Walking is fine, and what beats a steady walk in the countryside on horseback.

Be assured you have nothing to be nervous about.




How do I book?


Contact us via phone, email, website contact page, facebook or instagram. We will help you choose the correct service and a day/time that suits you best.




How do I pay?


Payment is taken to confirm booking. This can be made via transfer or online card payment, we also have a card machine in our reception or cash for payment on the day.




Can my friends and I all go trekking together?


Absolutely, we welcome group bookings and we hope for lots of laughs along the way!




What is a trek?


Depending on how long you are going trekking depends on the type of terrain. We have various options available: from a simple relaxing walk, walk and some steady trotting, walk and more upbeat trotting, walk, trot and cantering.




When should I arrive?


Please try and arrive at least 10 minutes early for your trek so we can make sure you are on your horse and ready to go. If it is your first time with us, we will talk you through everything and assess your riding ability before picking a horse for you. You will also need to fill out a rider registration form.




What if I need to cancel?


Due to an increasing amount of late cancellations & ‘no shows’ we have had to implement a cancellation policy.
Please let us know if you need to cancel your appointment.
If cancellation is within 48 hours – 50% of the fee will be retained/charged
For ‘No shows’ & cancellations within 24 hours - the full fee will be retained/charged




What if the weather is bad?


This is Scotland, we are used to all sorts of weather here! In extreme weather then treks/hacks may be changed to an indoor riding activity.
