THE SCOT­TISH BOR­DERS RIDE

GLO­BE­TROT­TING

$4060 PER PER­SON (7 DAYS)

Cue the sound of bag­pipes, the breeze un­der your kilt, and plenty of Out­lander vibes. This new ride gives equine en­thu­si­asts the chance to ride with Scot­tish lads and lassies in the old­est horserid­ing fes­ti­val in the world – the Com­mon Rid­ings. Hark­ing back to the 13th and 14th cen­turies, to a time of Clan clashes and land border wars, Com­mon Rid­ing is a grand tra­di­tion cel­e­brated in Scot­land be­tween May and Septem­ber, when this ride takes place. On other days, you’ll en­joy gen­teel hacks through sto­ry­book scenery and re­tire each night to Cringletie House Ho­tel with a wee dram by the fire. With a chance to try your hand at High­land games, even though this ride is for in­ter­me­di­ate to ex­pe­ri­enced riders, there’s enough to keep non-rid­ing part­ners en­ter­tained, too. Ex­pect two to six hours in the sad­dle each day.
