Very Nice family and splendid ways to ride theirs horses. Very near with their horse !!! And their two Childs are smiling !!!
What a stunning place to go for a horse ride. It is a little bit remote, but the drive is worthwhile, because you will have an unforgettable day. Our daughter had the most amazing ride. She loved the scenery, the special light and the energy of that place. We plan to come back to Scotland and then we will definately book another ride. Thank you so much.
Thank you Sasha for a really lovely hour riding with you, only my second time but you made me feel very relaxed. My friend Jeanie was so pleased to have ridden again after many years - and in such wonderful scenery!
Hi Iain, I just wanted to tell you how much myself and my daughter Autumn enjoyed our ride on Friday. It was truly wonderful to experience a tiny bit of your beautiful empire! And you have inspired us more than you could imagine and for that I am beyond grateful - it was awesome listening to your stories of your life: you are most certainly winning at life!!! Since we got back to grey Manchester I have done nothing but search the internet for properties that we can afford so that we can transform our lives into something more real - within 2 years we know that we will now be living in the Highlands and I can't wait. Thank you for everything, and thank you to Rusty and Quaver for looking after us x
Really amazing work! Keep it up! ;)
Hello Ian, I put some of the photos I took during our wonderful ride on my blog. We had both sun and clouds, but no rain. Ian shared that, "It only rains at night in the Highlands." Just a sample of the anecdotal wit of Ian. :-)
For anyone that wants to know a bit about what you may expect on the 3.5 hour ride, you can take a look at the photos on my blog. If you are considering whether to take a ride in the Highlands, I would recommend Highland Pony Trekking. GO!! I would love to go again for either a full day or a couple days! Just to be able to commit more of the Highlands to memory.
We would like to thank Sasha and Iian for getting us in for a trek on super short notice. They were both fabulous about scheduling, helping us get there and suggestions that made our day spectacular. Horse back riding is my favorite outdoor activity and this was the best trail ride I've been on in many years. Sasha paired us both with perfect ponies and was an informative and entertaining guide. Reel was such a joy to ride. The scenery was incredible and rarely seen by tourist. No houses or people in sight for miles beautiful countryside. The weather even cooperated with bouts of warm sunshine between light . I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing time seeing the true nature of the Scottish Highlands. We would go back again in a heartbeat.
We booked an hour's trek at short notice. The weather was sunny with no wind and at that time in mid October, the trees were looking their best. It was the last day of a super week in Tomich and it was like saving the best to last. We two adults and three children were teamed up with the right horses, with our eldest boy having Rusty, the leader, which pleased him no end. Another of us was on Uisge, aka the Big Baked Bean, which provided much amusement. Sasha predicted that her shinty team would win their game against Glasgow and win their league and was right. Well done and congratulations!
When you plan a trip for years, anticipation grows and the trip itself can be hard to fulfill. The Pococks lived up to every hope and expectation and then surpassed it again. Thank you for such a magical, fabulous day. We booked via email which went smoothly but I misunderstood the lunch arrangements - never fear Sasha whipped up some sandwiches for us and we were off. We rode Orbit and Angus with Ian on how favorite Nutmeg. Their 3 dogs also rounded out our merry party and we were off for the day. The scenery was stunning and the trail was challenging No staid and boring trail for us! We went off trail and blazed our way up to the top of the peaks for the view of a lifetime. I highly recommend their services and would visit again with pleasure.
Thank you so much for providing our children (Laurie, Alister and Stella) with the highlight of their holiday during our stay in the highlands at the end of August.
Beautiful location, placid ponies, kind, calm and friendly instruction and guiding from Sasha - we couldn't ask for more.
I hope you don't mind but I couldn't find you on trip advisor so have started the process to get you listed in the hope that many more travellers will find you and be able to share this amazing experience.
To anyone unsure about doing this - don't hesitate! - I can't recommend this highly enough!!
