They must use sanitiser before entering in door gallery and wear face coverings.

Important information: Please could ALL clients download and complete the updated Rider Registration Form before attending your first post-Covid session. Please then return by email to bookings@towerfarm.org. We have a new digitalised system now.

Polite request: the horses and team at Tower are loving being able to still welcome people on site but we wish to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Please can the number of individuals coming to Tower Farm be limited to client riding plus one other parent/guardian. (If possible wait in your car whilst session taking place.)

Please can you ensure you have used bathroom facilities before coming on site. The toilets are open but only to be used as last resort.

Please bring your own small hand sanitizer as this limits the amount of touch points.

Only 1 person per client riding to enter gallery, only sit with members of the same household and always wear a face covering. (We appreciate sometimes siblings need to come along but please just wait in car if possible.)

We are encouraging all clients to purchase their own equipment, if you do need to borrow, please return to office not hooks so they can be sanitised.

Many thanks to everyone that has been unbelievably supportive at this very strange time.

TF hoodies: jackets, shirts and many more available.

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 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.
