What better way to appreciate the countryside is there than on horseback? Portree Stables, a small, family-run business, could help you on your way. No, you won’t be competing in a steeplechase any time soon but you can enjoy the gentle pleasures of Pony Trekking on horses or ponies through the tranquil Glen where the stables are located. There’s no rush either: the treks go at the pace of the least able rider , primarily in walk, trotting where safe to do so and dependent on the weather, the riders and so forth.
Children can experience what it is like to have the responsibility of looking after a horse in Own A Pony Day or the whole family might like some lessons in basic horsemanship either in private or group lessons, whatever the weather, in the indoor and outdoor riding schools. Book yourself some equine fun whether you are a holidaymaker or a permanent resident on Skye.
