Pony Trekking and Horse riding are available at centres in and near to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park (or is it Pony Trecking?)

terrain in this part of Scotland offers everything from easy gentle rides for the complete novice to the more demanding trekks over some of the moors and mountain slopes. It is often said that the best way to enjoy the scenery is on foot - many who have tried pony trekking in Scotland would disagree!

PONY TREKKING

We have been operating as a Trekking Centre for several years and our experienced staff will ensure that your enjoyment and safety is paramount. We have our own ponies and horses which are personally tended by ourselves. This means we know each animal individually and can suit the horse to the rider. Enjoy the beautiful countryside from the back of one of our experienced horses under the supervision of our helpful staff. We aim  to cater for all ability levels and ages of 4 and above and our  priorities are customer enjoyment and safety, giving opportunities for all to reach their own potential. Children are given 1-1 supervision if needed. Our treks are one and two hours long and cover some of the most scenic countryside within the  Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Hats are provided & fitted by our staff members.

The Surroundings

Rednock Farm is in a level rural area near to the Lake of Menteith with rolling hills immediately to the north and the Camsie Hills about 4 miles to the south. We are located on a circular route known as 'The Trossachs Trail'. We have immediate access from the farm to a large variety of rides to suit all capabilities.

You can take your ride at the walk, trot, canter or gallop on hillsides, woodlands, lowlands and splash.

During your ride you may encounter deer, buzzards, Sparrowhawks, Red Kites, Badgers and foxes - and of course 'sheeps and Coos'.

After exhilarating horseback climbs you will see some great landscapes and views:

  • To the south east we look over the Carse of Stirling to the easily recognised outlines of Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the oddly shaped hill of Dumyat, an outlyer of the Ochil hills.
  • To the south we look over Killorn Moss to Kippen in the foothills of the Campsies.
  • To the southwest we look over Scotland's only 'Lake' - the Lake of Menteith to Flanders Moss and the Campsie hills

Where-ever you ride from Rednock farm there is always something worth seeing.

We encourage and assist you to make the most of your riding potential.

A few rules!

  • Trekks are for a maximum of 13 persons.
  • All riders must be above four years of age - no upper limit!
  • Maximum rider weight is 17 stone.
  • Riding hats are provided and must always be worn when riding.

We are open all year
