Most of our riding horses are Highland Ponies, the largest Scottish native pony, chosen for their versatility, good temperament & because they are so well adapted to West Highland conditions.
Standing between 13hh & 14.2hh, Highland Ponies are very strong for their height, however on our rough terrain and for your safety and the ponies welfare we restrict riders to a maximum weight of 12 Stone / 76kg
We also breed the smaller Eriskay Pony, now classified as an endangered breed, this is the original Western Isles pony. Today these exceptionally tough & hardy ponies make excellent, active riding & driving ponies for small adults & children.
Our ponies are kept as naturally as possible : living in small herds or family groups, they live out all year on extensive hill pasture and large parks. Kept this way, the ponies are more relaxed and healthy, they should know their place in the herd (!) and tend to work better as a group.
We keep between 6 & 8 riding ponies, (plus the brood mares & young stock ); but not normally exceeding three riders, plus guide on a trek.
Occaisionally we have ponies for sale.......please enquire.
