The Best Riding Holidays



Scottish Equestrian Hotel is the largest riding holiday  centre in the U.K., and has been established for over thirty five years.  We still love doing what we do !   The proprietor, Maureen Taylor, her son Paul and her amazing staff  have established the name, Scottish Equestrian Hotel, as a centre of excellence when it comes to riding holidays, and absolutely everything equestrian. Scottish Equestrian Centre has been awarded a five star rating with VisitScotland.  It is situated in a very scenic area, just outside the lovely old market town of Lanark in Scotland. This is a marvellous area of Scotland,  beautiful scenery and very accessible.  We’re only 45 minutes from Glasgow &Edinburgh Airports.

We  cater for all ages and all levels of riding expertise, from novices to experienced riders. We offer  both adult and unaccompanied children’s riding holidays for 8-16’s.  Children of all ages can enjoy a horse riding holiday tailored for the complete enjoyment of children.

The ADULT RIDING HOLIDAYS   are fun, flexible, instructional and relaxing.
You can ride up to four hours each day and every holiday is tailored to the individual to ensure you get the best out of your holiday. You can  select the programme.    There’s lots to do off horse.  Great Walks, Cycling and Golfing and all within 5 minutes of the Centre.  We’re open all year.

No matter what age you are, or how experienced or inexperienced you are at horse riding, the one thing that everyone has in common, is the sheer joy, pleasure and enjoyment of  spending  time with horses in a lovely green environment.  Our  guests  return year after year which we love.
