Wow I cannot say enough good things about their store. I was in dire need of a body protector and I needed it fast (over a bank holiday weekend nonetheless). I ordered it on a saturday evening. I had a question about shipping that night and my phone call was answered promptly. My order was fulfilled and I received it... More

On our lovely time in Ayr we decided to visit this centre. From the moment we went into the office the staff were excellent. They could not be more helpful and considerate. The staff were very concerned about the standard my 13 yrs and 15yrs children riding and would not allow them to ride without a lead as the hack... More

My family and I were on holiday in Ayr and decided to give the beach ride a go. We are all experienced riders and we had a great time. It was a thoroughly enjoyable ride, on great horses and with a knowledgable instructor

I have been going to Ayr Equestrian for around 15 years now and I have never found fault with anything up there. In all my years going there I have never once seen a 14 year old girl taking lessons, all the staff are 18+ and I know the centre would never let anyone so young teach a lesson! Also,... More

So, tonight, I was reading the other reviews and noticed someone had said that the place is "Poor." But personally, if you ask me, the person needs to get their facts correct before insulting anybody. Ayrshire Equitation Centre would not let anyone under the age of 18yo take any lessons due to health and safety reasons and also the place... More

The equestrian centre is very proffesional and has good horses that will be matched to their rider. We have used it a few times for our daughter who is now 10 and she loves it. The down-side to its location is that the trek often involves riding on the road which may not suit everybody. I have used other places... More
