Horse Riding

The Scottish Borders is famed for some of the best horse-riding country, with local stables and riding schools offering tuition in riding and country hacks. Several short and long distance routes are accessible nearby, including the Buccleuch Country Ride which spans 57 miles. We strongly recommend you book riding lessons in advance of your stay, as schools are often booked, particularly at peak times during the school holidays and the Border Festivals.
