Horse Riding the Trails

There are miles of off road, or quiet minor-road riding routes radiating from the campsite.

Bring your horses and ride out in new country. We welcome people either on their own or in groups, and we would be delighted to discuss your requirements prior to booking. We will soon be part of the Horses Welcome scheme.

Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping has spacious indoor traditional stables, with washroom, tack room etc, - take a look at the Gallery photos: these are beautiful stables. There are also modern loose boxes in the yard where your horses will be very comfortable. Out-turn paddocks are not far away.

So while you enjoy the company in the Barn and the facilities of the Hub, and either one of our yurts or your own tent, your horse will be well found.

We are in the heart of the Jed Forest Hunt, and the area is well used to horses passing through.

The Jedburgh Horse Trail (also known as Jedforest Trails) is a figure-of eight multi-use route based on drove roads and Dere Street around the historic town of Jedburgh (6 miles – 15 mins from campsite). The trail is clearly waymarked and provides a link between routes on the Cheviot Hills developed as part of the South of Scotland Countryside Trails project, and the Buccleuch Country Rides around Hawick and Selkirk.
