If you are looking for a riding holiday (from short pony treks to long-distance trail rides) then why not come to Scotland? After all, this is where pony-trekking started, some 50 years ago, when Lt. Commander Jock Kerr joined the Scottish Council of Physical recreation with the ambition to get more of Scotland's young people into the hills, the glens and mountains. And with the superb, unspoilt countryside, tranquil lochs and heather-clad hills to trek in, you can see his point!
Today there are top-quality trekking and riding centres throughout Scotland, offering everything from short treks for youngsters and beginners, through "hacks" for the more experienced rider right up to week long trails for those who want to cover long distance rides on horseback.
