We are open:

We are operating the new timetable from 1st April 2021. Please look on tower-farm.ecpro.co.uk for availability on the day you wish to ride. Please also check our Facebook page to see our latest news.

Update 1/04:

We can also accept riders over 12 yrs in group lessons. However, in any sessions, we can only accept 12 yrs+ riders who can mount safely and complete their own safety checks (Level 3 standard). This is due to social distancing and our instructors being unable to be in close contact.

The yard is still off limit to clients. Please wait by benches for your instructor and horse and only please attend the stables if you have an appointment booked.

The office will remain closed.

Only 1 adult spectator comes per rider and please leave the premise promptly after your sessions to keep numbers on site to a minimum.

Please wear face coverings when not mounted.

If you need to borrow helmets, we will have them available in the arena but if possible please purchase your own helmet and body protector. We insist all under 16 yrs wear body protector for jumping but strongly recommend everyone wears one.

Any enquiries, please contact us via email.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone..

TF hoodies: jackets, shirts and many more available.

Learn to ride - All ages, all stages

Established in 1972 Tower Farm is a fairly large establishment with a wide choice of equestrian activities. Tower Farm fully licensed and insured and is approved by BHS, ABRS and TRSS.

Tower Farm has access to many scenic rides with no road work, most rides go around the Braid Hills Golf Course where you are able to view the whole of Edinburgh including the Pentlands, Arthur seat, The Castle, the Forth Bridges and many other of Edinburgh’s famous landmarks.

Tower Farm offers individual instruction, group lessons, own a pony days, pony rides, beach rides and ride outs for all. Competitions, livery and clinics with Andrew Hamilton, Karen Carson and Joy McLean are available for those wishing to progress. Tower Farm also often hosts lecture/demos with equine stars such as Kelly Marks and Richard Maxwell.

We have a wide variety of horses/ponies from 11hh to 17hh so we have horses to suit all needs. We can cater for most requests and can make arrangements for longer rides, disabled riders etc if required. If your nursery, school or club would like to organise a session, don't hesitate to get in touch.
