We look forward to welcoming you to Scotland's forests. To enjoy your visit safely please plan ahead, follow local signage and park considerately.

You can enjoy all the Tweed Valley’s forests on horseback, but Cardona is particularly good. The miles of trails offer lots of different options for cross-country hacks, and there’s plenty of room in the car park for horse boxes.

The smaller, charming forest at Cademuir is another good option, again with parking space for horse boxes.

If you’re looking for somewhere that can take you on a guided ride, or introduce you to the joys of exploring the forest on horseback, contact Kailzie Equestrian Centre. They also offer a livery service.

See our horse riding section for more information.

Trails in the Tweed Valley Forest Park

The Tweed Valley offers some of the best tracks and trails for horse riding in Scotland, and we’ve worked hard with local stakeholders to ensure our forests in this area cater to horse riders, and to every forest user. Find out more about how we’re working to create ideal environments for walking, mountain biking and horse riding in the Tweed Valley.
