Lochhill Equestrian

Equestrian & Trekking Centre

Lochhill Equestrian Centre was established in 1999 and is set in the heart of the beautiful countryside of South West Scotland. We offer a wide range of equestrian services varying from Schooling and breaking horse, five star livery (with other packages available), horse sales, teaching lessons with Helen Jack doing freelance teaching also and also arena hires.

Unfortunately after many years of our riding school and trekking centre being successful, we have decided to close our doors to focus on our livery aspects and schooling and breaking. We are now offering a variety of packages for all your needs, please see the livery panel and schooling and breaking panel for more information.
We would like to thank all our previous and current customers for all your support over the years. We are now open for experienced riders however with their own Insurance for hacks or lessons, please contact the Lochhill office on 01557820225 to book.

TOFFEE

14.2HH 3 year old mare.

Toffee was backed in January then turned away to mature. She was a very easy girl to back and is now riding away quietly. Toffee is being brought on slowly and nothing seems to phase her. She happily goes on short hacks alone or in company. She is a steady ride and has a great temperament.

Toffee has good manners on the ground. She is good to catch, groom, tack up and lead. She lives out all year round with mares and geldings, she is rugged in winter. She has no health issues or vices known to us and is open to any vettings/xrays you require.

No novices - although quiet she is only 3 and requires someone who can carry on her education.
