About image
We're based on the beautiful Lunga Estate, on the West Coast of Scotland. Open all year round, we offer trail rides and lessons for any experience and age over 6, taking out both individuals and group treks.

NB:- We do cater for 4-6 year olds, offering a taster of horse riding in an arena which is a safe environment for your little one to begin their riding career.

Enjoy stunning ocean views looking over the isles of Jura and Scarba, as well as hilly forest treks, with opportunities to ride across open hills for our more experienced riders.

For an unusual gift - why not buy a friend or loved one a voucher, valid for 6 months! You can buy for any ride or choose an amount of money for them to use at their leisure.

English Riding
English riding takes many of its traditions and equipment from European mounted military styles. The saddle is smaller and lighter as all English saddles are designed to avoid interfering with the horse’s movement while providing a secure seat for the rider. Dressage, widely described as “ballet for horses” is always performed on English trained horses with English tack. Show jumping, racing, hacking, hunting, and polo are also events in which English riding is the norm.

Western Riding 
We are the only place in Scotland which offers Western Riding with our dual trained horses, including classic American Appaloosas and Quarter horses!

Western is a style of riding which evolved from the ranching and warfare traditions brought to the Americas. It is a disciplined, relaxed way of going in order to make hours in the saddle as comfortable as possible for both the horse and the rider. The horse is encouraged to carry itself in balance and is guided by small rein, leg and body movements. Anyone can learn to ride Western. Many people find it is easier as the design of the saddle offers more support, and the horse is trained to use smoother paces which are easier to sit to. It doesn't matter if you have never ridden a horse before or experienced in other riding disciplines. Our gentle horses will have you feeling confident in a short time. Come try it for yourself at just an extra £10pp!
