Dumfries House Estate Ride

1 Mar 2020


Due to the current crisis with Coronavirus (Covid-19) we have cancelled/postponed all of our calendar of events and gatherings until the end of June 2020.

Our regional teams and committees are in the process of advising everyone who has booked or indicated an interest of the cancellation.

Join BHS Scotland through the estate surrounding Dumfries House, Ayrshire. Dumfries House is one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes set in 2,000 acres of land, saved by the intervention of His Royal Highness, The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay in 2007.

These are guided rides by Denise Richardson-Rowell, Education Farmer Manager, who is also a BHS Accredited Professional Coach.
The ride will last for approximately 1 hour and will take in the beautiful grounds of Dumfries House Estate including riding past the Main House, Arbornetum, Adams Bridge, Duchess of Rothesay Avenue and also a chance to go through the river and have a canter in the fields (for the faster group and weather permitting). The rides will be held to fundraise jointly for the British Horse Society and The Prince’s Foundation.

Cost: £20.
9.30am: Faster ride (group trot and canter)
2pm: Slow ride – walk and trot only.
