Craigengillan Estate is proud to offer some of the best riding and livery services in Scotland

At the splendid Category A listed Georgian Stables enjoy riding guidance from fully qualified staff available to all ages and abilities.

You can trek for days through Craigengillan and neighbouring Galloway Forest Park without crossing a public road.



Our large, light and airy stables offer top-class accommodation for your horse or pony. A full livery service includes daily turn-out, individual feeding programmes, full grooming, exercise (if needed) and a regular worming programme. There is also a comfortable club room, complete with open fire, so both you and your horse will feel well cared for after a day’s riding.

For those who prefer their horse or pony to live outdoors there is the option of all year round grass livery. Our BHS accredited staff are highly experienced in backing and schooling young horses and ponies. The relaxed atmosphere and fantastic hacking facilities make Craigengillan an ideal location to start your young horse’s education.

We also offer:
