Horse riding holiday at Castle Leslie
Castle Leslie’s history with horses goes back a long way; 353 years to be exact. I had the opportunity to ride side saddle on a saddle that was, shall we say, priceless. It was a one-of-a kind, 300 year old antique saddle that fit Percy beautifully. That’s me riding Percy, the smart looking Irish cob, in the photo above. I can’t imagine how ladies rode in their gowns like this, but I had my moment of fame. It’s opportunities like these that make your stay at Castle Leslie special. The staff and all of the riding instructors go out of their way to make your holiday memorable.
