Managing horse riding
Providing for and managing equestrian access.
NatureScot has worked in partnership with Scottish Land and Estates and the British Horse Society Scotland to produce the guidance below:
- Equestrian Access in Scotland: Horse riding, carriage driving and managing access responsibly
- Detailed guidance about equestrian access on different types of land
- Case studies demonstrating positive equestrian access provision
- Horse sense: Equestrian access in Scotland
Guidance from a collaboration of the British Horse Society Scotland (BHSS), NatureScot and the Paths for All Partnership (PFAP) on construction and maintenance of facilities for horses and riders can be found in these Equestrian access fact sheets.
A poster is also available called Are you riding responsibly? This Are you riding responsibly poster aimed at riding schools, stables and other equestrian establishments giving key information about access rights to the outdoors whilst out horse riding in Scotland. It can be printed at A4 or A3 size. For further information visit Responsible Horse Riding.
