Turnberry Equestrian Centre

Horse Riding and Lessons in Scotland

Unbridled Adventures

Nestled in the grounds of Turnberry Resort, you will find Turnberry Equestrian Centre, home to our very own equine family consisting of majestic Percheron and Cob horses, alongside our delightful ponies. We embrace Equido Horsemanship principles- a natural approach to training that forms a true bond between horse and rider. By leveraging our expertise in horse and rider biomechanics, psychology, body language and energy, we aim to optimise both horse and rider while prioritising well-being and lasting performance.

The welfare of our horses and ponies is of utmost importance to us and so we ensure effective training, a safe and nurturing environment, and lots of love is provided to guarantee our equine companions thrive and reach their full potential.

With a stunning location on the Ayrshire coast, Turnberry offers a variety of activities for horse riding in Scotland for all ages and expertise. Whether you are embarking on a beginner's lesson or seeking the thrill of a beach ride, our dedicated instructors ensure an unforgettable experience.
