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. We are now offering a variety of packages for all your needs, please see the livery panel for more information.
we would like to thank all our previous and current customers for all your support over the years.


Going away on holiday and want to take your horse? Then we can help with a new special package with different kinds of offers for you and your four legged friend. We can take you out trekking or choose to do it yourself, we have a full floodlit arena with a course of Working Hunter and Show jumps available and we also have a onsite cross country course available.

We also have power points/electrical hook-ups for caravans and lorries if required. 



Is your horse ready for breaking but you don’t have the time? Have you got a problem that you can’t fix? Are you not confident enough to do the things you wish you could?

We are a friendly team at Lochhill with multiple years of experience in backing, breaking, schooling and problem horses (or owner). No horse or owner will ever be judged, we are all good enough! We work with a kind approach and take the next step when horse or rider is ready to progress to the next stage.
