Redwing Riding School
Lessons and forest rides for all ages and stages.
We are situated in one of the most beautiful areas of Deeside, while being just ten minutes in a car from the outskirts of Aberdeen.
We offer half-hour rein led lessons for young children and one hour lessons for older children and adults.
Our staff provide patient, friendly and enlightened instruction to all, from complete beginners to the more experienced. Our horses are quiet and friendly and are great confidence givers whilst still providing a lively and fun ride when asked.
We can also arrange birthday party rides, social outings and family rides in the forest with helpers on foot if necessary.
We never sell our horses and when they are no longer fit for work they spend their retirement in their old fields, with their same pals, for the rest of their natural lives. As we have evolved over the years, we have become more and more aware that sticks, whips and other gadgets, often used in riding and in training, can only have a negative effect on a horse or pony. We never use them. We endeavour to teach every client to regard his or her mount as a partner, with emotions as well as physical feelings of pain and discomfort. We now have an excellent staff, totally committed to teaching a kinder way of riding, and we have many sensitive and competent riders to our credit. We welcome new clients who want to learn to ride without cruelty.
Prices range from £15 for half hour children's lessons, £24 for one hour in a group and £35 for a private lesson or hack.
