Our 5 year old wanted to go riding, so decided he could this try this on Arran. Dawn was great, from when we booked till we left clearly explaining everything to us. The stables are immaculate and horses all well cared for. For his first pony adventure, a trek across the beach and golf course with a lovely pony called... More

My friend and I went on an hours trek and it was fantastic as always. Great instruction, horses and wow scenery.The weather was perfect and riding along the beach made the whole experience very special, especially as my friend has never ridden on a beach before. Thank you Cairnhouse riding centre, we will be back! Xx

We went for an hour's trek which took us along small tracks and across fields with a little bit of roadwork. I can ride but my partner is a complete beginner and owner Dawn made us both feel very welcome. We both had a lovely time riding safe and willing horses and my partner got to trot a few times...

My partner and I booked an hour long walk for first timers and had a fantastic experience. Dawn was lovely and friendly and put us at ease as it was a tad scary considering the height of the horses once we got up on them. We went a walk along the beach and golf course with a wee trot. I... More

I went for an hour's ride with my kids at Cairnhouse Stables in August 2014 and we had a great experience. The owner Dawn was friendly and accommodating when booking, and she took us on the ride herself and was very good with the kids. The stable environment was clean and attractive, and the horses seemed content and well cared... More

Thank you Dawn for making this such a great day :) I'm not the most experienced rider but the two hour ride gave me opportunities to walk, trot and canter with the route being up a hill with stunning views, then along the beach and in the sea. With it being a small group, it stretched me and I learned... More

I had a super 2 hour ride with Dawn and a lovely horse called Katie. Beautiful scenery and a lovely route finished off with a gallop along the beach - Perfect!

I had an amazing time - I went on the 2-hour hack two days in a row. Dawn was so warm, friendly and knowledgeable, while also inspiring immediate respect, confidence and admiration. The horses were clearly very well taken care of, which always makes me so happy. I've had showjumping lessons but not much experience with outdoor riding, and the... More

A friend and I booked to go riding at the stables, and had a brilliant time. I was nervous as the last time I'd ridden (not on Arran), I'd had a really bad experience, but Dawn was absolutely brilliant. The group was of mixed ability and ages (included a lovely 6 year old and a disabled gentleman who rides at... More
