Equestrian livery yard for horse owners – at the foot of the Pentland Hills, Edinburgh.


Swanston Farm offers Grass Livery for horse owners, with the option of stables available for DIY Livery, benefitting from an indoor arena, a 60m x 30m all-weather outdoor arena, a cross-country jumps field, hacking around the 700 acre farm and endless hacking up into the 25,000 acres of Pentland Hills Regional Park.


All fields have rust-free galvanised steel water troughs which are kept clean and maintained by the farm and shelters in every field. Our large fields are kept with small-herd grazing, meaning that Swanston farm horses have plenty of room to gallop about and live a more natural life. In winter, adlib hay and haylage is available for the horses in the fields and during the Spring and Summer months all the fields are harrowed to keep the pastures well-maintained and parasites down. Swanston Equestrian follows a bio-security policy in order to keep it a Strangles-free facility.

Pony Trekking

Pony-trekking is also available with the Edinburgh University’s Exmoor Pony Trekking Centre, based at Swanston Farm. Join them for an amazing riding experience in the stunning Pentland Hills as they trek around Swanston Farm and further to Bonally and Glencorse reservoirs.
