Phoned today only to be told the Centre no longer provides horse riding. It would be helpful if the owners could either update their website (which currently advertises a variety of riding options) to reflect this, or take it down altogether - and would, I...More

Very friendly. Daughter did 1hr hack on beach (included canter/gallop) and 2hr hack to Culzean Castle (mostly walking). Was confident that skills were properly assessed and she was matched with two lively ponies/horses. She really enjoyed, although preferred the 1hr due to the beach cantering!

I've started going every week and the staff are professional, very safety conscious, helpful and friendly. I take other people with me most weeks at different levels of riding and everyone needs are met. Fully recommended. What better than a ride along the beach?

I pre booked them via the Starwoods Turnberry hotel. Mind you that they charge twice as much as they ferry you to and from the riding centre
