If you’re booked on one of our rides in Scotland, The Thirlestane Castle Ride or The Scottish Borders Ride, you’ll be in for a treat when you meet your delightful guide, Susy McIntosh. We asked Susy to give us the run-down on what she does and why she loves it.
How long have you been running your riding outfit in the Scottish Borders? And what was the background, history, reason for starting?
I started my business in the Scottish Borders 20 years ago. I’ve had a passion for working with horses all my life.
Describe your herd of horses in four words:

What do you love most about your job?
Working with the lovely horses and customers.
What is the most challenging part?
Pairing the right horse with the correct rider.
