She was near Dick Vet. Swanston was on the opposite side of the motorway.

Yeah, Swanston's the Penicuik side of the bypass. Up by the ski slope.

Aye, you're right. Swanston was on the same side as the ski slope. There was another DIY place on the Edinburgh side of the bypass that I checked out at one point.

Haven't a clue what that one could be! Lol

Did you ever go to the Icelandic horses place at Carlops?

I can't remember its name. I needed full livery anyway so wasn't much bothered after I learned they didn't do that.

I knew the Icelandic horse place existed nearby but never went there. Have you been?

Yeah, I went there about eight weeks after I had my first lesson!

That was my first proper experience of cantering, too! Up the Pentland Hills on tracks barely wide enough for a car...!

Fun, though!

Sadly they don't do trekking out there any more - but the farm is still there for breeding Icelandics...

I never had a chance to ride in the Pentlands, even though they were within spitting distance of the stable. Access however would have entailed either having a trailer (I don't), riding down the A701 (I didn't fancy my chances at not getting run over by a lorry, a bus, or an eejit in their car), or going on a two hour ride to even get to the trail head (too lazy).

Decent riding around North Lanarkshire, though. Can't complain here.

I can imagine. I only did a little riding up near Lennoxtown, but the area surrounding the school was really nice.

And I had the biggest horse on the yard, who was a Clydesdale x TB!

Those draft crosses are grand. Mine is a Shire X TB.

The riding down near Penicuik any good?
