At Alvie Stables we ride through the beautiful countryside of Alvie Estate which is in the Cairngorms National Park.
In addition to spectacular views of the Cairngorm mountain range and Spey Valley, there is a real chance to see wildlife such as deer, red squirrels, rabbits, buzzards and even the occasional osprey.
Established in 1994 and TRSS approved, our qualified and friendly staff place an emphasis on enjoyment and safety. The horses and ponies are well schooled and range from 12.2hh to 16.3hh with a variety of breeds and colours.
We cater for all levels of riders – trekking for beginners, walk and trot rides for intermediate riders and hacking for riders that can canter. The tracks and paths take us through woodland and hillside, all with beautiful views.
We offer 30-minute mini rides, 45-minute rides, 1 hour and 90 minutes which cost £16, £22, £27 and £37 pp respectively. We cater for children from 3 years and family rides are a speciality. All equipment such as riding hats, boots, jackets, overtrousers and gloves are available free of charge.
Please note that there is a weight limit of 15 stone (97 kgs, 210 lbs). We ask clients to be at the stables 15 minutes prior to your booking time.
To find us travel on the B9152 between Aviemore and Kincraig, looking out for the yellow Alvie Stables sign which is 4 miles south of Aviemore or 1 mile north of Kincraig. DO NOT go onto the A9 as this is now a dual carriageway.
Please try to book in advance to avoid disappointment, but if you are booking on the day we can only take telephone bookings so please call or text 07831 495397. Advance bookings can be taken by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you to Alvie Stables!
