Week long holidays.  Choose the best holiday to suit you.

Sun – Sat. Arrive Sunday after lunch. Depart the following Saturday before lunch. Your programme will be discussed on Sunday, and you will try a horse or two to assess the best ride for you.  We want you to enjoy your riding holiday to the maximum.

You will ride a minimum  of 4 hours each day.  The week’s programme will be a mix of tuition and hacking as you prefer.  Some people may like some time out  to go sightseeing, which is absolutely fine.   After all, Edinburgh is less than an hour away. Even Loch Lomond is only just over an hour away.   This allows you to make the most of your riding holiday with us.

In Lanark itself, where Sir William Wallace launched his freedom drive, there is a Wallace Trail.  You can visit the spot where it is believed his house stood. This really is Braveheart Country!

In the evenings you will enjoy a leisurely meal, and then you can either visit the pubs around the area – of which there are plenty! – or take stroll in the woods that skirt Lanark Loch, or walk to the legendary Falls of Clyde. Alternatively, you might care to ride  one of our mountain bikes, or watch a movie in Peepers Cinema  or just curl up in a cosy corner with a good book.
