Horse Riding and Pony Trekking in the Cairngorms National Park

Pony trekking is said to have started in the Cairngorms, with the sturdy Highland ponies that work alongside stalkers, carrying deer off the hill.  Today there are several pony trekking centres in the Cairngorms National Park, offering everything from beginners lessons to multi-day treks. Look out for the Cairngorms on Horseback leaflet and ask about the 'offer voucher' at each of the eight riding centres.
