We booked a 1.5 hour Pony Trek and thoroughly enjoyed it. Yolande (think that is how you spell it?) was very friendly and patient, and took us on a trek through the local wooded area which gave us wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. The ponies we had were very accommodating for beginners, and knew we were soft touches when... More

I too rode out on Sept 9th We all booked an 'experienced ride' this means you are comfortable in all 3 paces, not the time to 'learn to canter' If you desire to improve your riding, best book a lesson, rather than an experienced ride. In familiarising ourselves with the ponies, it was clear the rider was using the reins... More

Pretty stable. Very cautious but well cared for horses. Teacher was nice and helpful, but manager named lorraine is the reason people dont ride. I was on the horse for 5 mins and getting adjusted to his pace when she yelled out that i was hurting the horse by pulling on the reins. Too bad because the rest of the... More

The Centre does 30 min led rides for £15.They have 2 Shetland ponies at the Centre - Arty and Pepsi -... More

Newtonmore Riding Centre had extremely helpful staff in finding the right type of ride for me and my partner, we both had limited or no experience and the staff helped us book and begin to feel comfortable on the horses. The ride itself was defiantly worth the money we paid, and we got to see a beautiful part of the... More

Took my partner here on holiday as he has always wanted To ride. I am already a rider with 25years experience with my own, so it really was for him, and it was fabulous. I must admit I would have like a little bit more of a forward horse, as I had told them I have advance experience on booking... More
