The riding center is very easy to find and has wonderful trails and Highland ponies. The staff is knowledgeable and they work hard to show you the wonders of the Highlands.

We stayed at Newtonmore for a few days and were given a great welcome. The yard is kept to a very high standard, extremely well run, and was really friendly. Thanks so much for having us!

We called at short notice to see if they could do a lead walk for our two year old son - they asked us to come straight away and we rushed there immediately. We were greeted friendly and a little old Shettie by the name of Archie appeared. A hat was fitted to the wee man's head and he enjoyed... More

my daughter goes to the Saturday saddle club and really enjoys it. Reasonably priced. I have also been on a trek with the horses and really enjoyed it, very hands on.

A small group of us visited here on a recent holiday to Scotland. We are all of a similar ability (good rising trot), and the location seemed ideal. The staff were friendly, and the horses were really well behaved (although a bit farty first thing in the morning). We had a quick run around the arena, which allowed the people... More

We took our grandaughters to ride, all under 7. We were met with courtesy and friendliness. The girls enjoyed learning how to prepare the ponies and then rode them. They were very happy and full of smiles when we came back. Two returned the following day and enjoyed it just as much. I would have given it five, but there... More
