Come trekking!! We run treks every Saturday and Sunday during the term time and we can try and arrange treks during the week.
The University of Edinburgh Exmoor Pony Trekking is a student-run non-profit making organisation (all the money we make goes back into caring for the ponies, trek leaders are not paid). We own 13 ponies at present. We cater for all levels of rider – whether you’ve never sat on a horse or whether you have ridden all your life, we guarantee you will have a fun time!
The ponies are currently at Swanston farm, South Edinburgh. Trek leaders will organise getting you out to the ponies which either involves driving out to the ponies or the 15/4 midlothian bus from the city center. Treks last approx 3 hours.
Trek leaders are mainly vet students who have taken a 1 year course to learn the ropes. We get taught first aid, pony first aid and how to take out a safe and enjoyable trek.
Children must be over 4 years of age to ride with us and all children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
