Advanced instruction can be arranged at one of the regular clinics run by visiting instructors and a variety of outdoor courses. The team actively promotes the ongoing schooling of horses and ponies, and the training of riders, with the declared aim of improving everyone’s skills.
Brechin Castle Equestrian Centre has an 70×20 outdoor school, an outdoor jump arena and many miles of hacking across the grounds of Dalhousie Estate – riders are spoilt for choice, with options including open ground, woodland paths and forestry. In the autumn the adjacent stubble fields make for exhilarating gallops. There is also an adjoining Captain Mark Phillips designed cross-country course that riders may access for a small additional charge. The facilities also include 37 indoor stables, up to 8 grass liveries. Paddocks are large and all have water drinkers and hay wheels for winter feed. A livery service is offered by Brechin.
