Horse Riding in and around Newcastleton

Horse riding is part of the landscape of the Borders and Newcastleton, which nestles in the Liddesdale valley, is true Reiver country and an absolute gem for horse riders.

The area is probably one of the few places left in Britain where you can ride safely on quiet country lanes which join up with miles and miles of off-road riding and forest tracks to create rides from an hour or two to all day.

With a host of routes through both Newcastleton and Kershope forests there are many circular rides to suit all abilities and expectations. The Cross Border route links to Kielder either by the Lewisburn or Bloody Bush trail.

Take a picnic and stop en-route so you and your horse can relax, take in the fantastic scenery and abundant wildlife during your ride.

So, what’s stopping you? Bring your horse on holiday to Newcastleton, we are sure you will both enjoy the experience.
