Horse riding lessons, pony rental, holiday camps & outrides

Welcome to our little slice of Heaven!

Ranger Stables is a small stable yard found in the heart of Craighall Park. What started out as a small collection of ponies has grown into a family of riders, horses and our community.

Horse riding lessons

At Ranger Stables, we offer horse riding lessons for children from the age of 6 all the way up to adults - they will learn from basic skills and knowledge all the way up to competitive level.

If you are interested in lessons, please contact Jess Markotter on rangerstables@gmail.com with the following information:

Pony rides

We also offer pony rides for children. Great for those tiny tots who want to start early. Rides run 15:00 - 16:00 each day, however booking is essential. Please pay the groom on duty for a pony ride directly. Please ensure to bring exact amounts, as we do not carry change.

Pony parties

Every little child wishes for a pony as a birthday present and now you can give them two! We offer lovely Pony Camp Parties & Pony Olympics Parties at the Stables or we can bring two ponies with a handler to your children's birthday party. Children can do pony rides and get to interact with these gentle giants. We are also available for schools, fetes & functions.
