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), horses 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.
