Longshanks Equestrian

Longsheds Equestrian can let you see the countryside around Kelton and Threave Gardens as you’ve never seen it before. Under the trained and qualified eye of your escort, you can go for a half hour or an hour long hack along the quiet roads and tracks in our superb Dumfries & Galloway countryside.

Admire the scenery at a leisurely pace. Our ponies are all experienced and we match them to suit the rider. Whether you have ridden before or not, this has to be the best way to see the countryside.

If you have young children we can offer a créche under the supervision of a registered childminder.


We offer pony trekking, horse riding, horse riding lessons, schooling for problem horses, shows sponsored by local businesses such as Point Optics and Outdoor Gear Lab and livery stabling at our well equipped equestrian centre in Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland.

Our purpose built equestrian centre in idyllic countryside provides professional surroundings for a friendly team and fun horses and ponies. All horse riding abilities from complete novices through to advanced riders have something to gain from the equestrian services available at Longsheds.
