All riders for Edinburgh need to be at Lasswade Stables for 7.45 am. If you wish a breakfast roll, please be there for 7.30 am and Susan will have the café open.

We will be leaving about 8.15 am (mounted) to hack up to The Drum. At halfway, please bring your horses back to the lorry and then return to re-mount at 1.15 pm.

Anyone wishing to take packed lunches are welcome to put them in the lorry to be taken up. There will be limited space for anyone wishing to get a lift back at the end to get their cars. Please if you could let us know it would be helpful.

Anyone riding the second half only needs to be at the lorries for 1pm. We will have all your flashes and will dish them out as you come to the office in the morning.

Hope you enjoy your day,


Welcome to Edinburgh and Lasswade Riding Centre. We are a friendly riding centre based just outside the City of Edinburgh, around 20 minutes from the city centre.
We cater for children from 2 years upwards and adults of all ages. We also cater for complete beginners up to the more advanced rider. Also for the once in a lifetime experience or for the weekly rider – there is no maximum or minimum times you must come. No joining fee – just come and try. We also have a play area to keep the rest of the family amused. Please feel free just to come and visit the horses and dogs.

We have approximately 50 horses for the riding school ranging from little Shetlands for the tinies up to 17 hh. We also have a wide range of horses for different abilities i.e. ones that are very quiet for the complete beginners, ones that jump, ones that go fast, thoroughbreds and many plain fun cobs. (We also have lots of little Jack Russells that are very friendly and from time to time have puppies for sale.)

We have both indoor and outdoor schools and plenty mainly off-road hacking or trekking. We also provide horses for beach rides, country rides and all Border common ridings. Ponies are also provided for Gala Days and birthday parties.

Our online booking service is now available for private lessons, hacks, treks and group lessons. Watch out for our special monthly offers!!
