Clinics and competitions 

Lindores Equestrian is 30 years old and focuses on providing training and horse holiday packages.  For riders who like to compete.  Many riders like competitions at Highfield at the Howe Country Centre. Highfield at the Howe hosts has a full competition and training schedule and is a short (12 minute) drive away from Lindores.

For those who wish to travel slightly further afield then over five miles of sandy beach awaits you at St Andrews West Sands and Tentsmuir Forest.

What will help me relax?

We have private hot tubs for you to relax in and enjoy the stunning countryside views.  But also for the time you are off your horse there are a huge number of local places of interest to help you relax and enjoy the area.  Only a short drive away you could experience the brand new Lindores Abbey Distillery for a whisky tour or drink in the bar.  Or visit St Andrews, Perth, Falkland for great food, history and cultural things to do.  Many guests ask our professional beautician to visit them for a private treatment such as massage or facial if they are staying in our luxury lodges.  For ideas on things to do visit https://www.lindores.co.uk/relax/

Where will my horse stay?

Our friendly family run farm at Lindores offers the ideal place to come and have fun with your horses and we are also dog friendly too. Stabling costs start from £20 per night and you can choose to buy hay, straw, shavings whatever suits your horse and makes them feel at home.

Hacking around the stunning farm estate is welcomed and riders can make use of the cross country course, sand school and grass show jumping paddocks which are available to hire from £20 per horse for an hour.  Body protectors must be worn when on the cross country course and you must be accompanied by someone on foot or horseback for safety.
