North Sannox Pony Trekking on the Isle of Arran

Get ready to experience the unbelievable landscape of Arran like never before! The North Sannox Pony Trekking was created in 1981 on a working sheep farm, and continues on today as a thriving local family run horse/pony trekking service.

There’s a large selection of horses available, so they’re sure to find one to match your specifications.  They range in height from 9hh to 16.2hh, are well versed in the differing terrains that the treks run through, and most importantly, they all have kind and gentle disposition.  You also have your pick of rides! The one hour trek takes you through a beautiful forest, then towards the coast where all sorts of local wildlife lives, such as seals, otters, porpoises and dolphins! The two hour ride is a circular route, it follows the local hills into the stunning Glen Sannox, then onto the local beach, and then back round a coastal path to North Sannox.  Keep your eyes peeled for seals, dolphins, and even basking sharks in the warmer seasons! Finally, the paddock ride is an excellent choice for younger riders (3-5 year olds) as they offer a short lead rein and a smaller child-sized pony.

Where can I find the North Sannox Pony Trekking Centre?
