As Argyll Adventure is an exclusive highly commended British Horse Society and Trekking & Riding Society Scotland Approved Livery Yard, you can be confident that we provide the very highest standards of care. Located in the beautiful Inveraray, Argyll, 90 mins from Glasgow, we are able to offer some of the most fabulous off road riding in Scotland. We also have an indoor and outdoor riding arena.
We offer a full livery package so you will never have to worry about your horse's day to day needs. As well as organising all the feeding, shoeing, worming, grooming, clipping, saddlery and veterinary needs, we can also make sure your horse is appropriately exercised and, if required, schooled. Please see our livery price list for the associated costs.
All of the horses are turned out daily. We separate mares and geldings. The horses are in our fields for 3 to 8 hours per day depending on weather and field conditions.
We also want to ensure that our livery clients are equally well looked after, and we offer a range of support depending on the level of involvement required from our friendly BHS & TRSS qualified staff. Livery clients are able to join in any of our hacks and special rides (subject to space) completely free of charge, only lessons are charged extra.
Our staff live on site, so that it is manned 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Every night the duty yard manager carries out a late night check. The tackroom and gates are locked in the evenings with a passcode so you can still gain entry if required.
We are a very sociable yard and host many events, equestrian related as well as social, which are typically well attended not only by our clients but often by their families and friends.
Livery spaces are subject to availability and we operate a waiting lists on a first come, first served basis.

Winter, Horse and Pony Loan
Ever wanted to own a horse but you are worried about the commitment? Our winter loan scheme is aimed at adults and children. Not only do you have access to a horse or pony you can call your own, you also get the opportunity to work in a supervised way on the yard alongside our staff to further increase your knowledge of equestrianism. You will have fun, socialise with like-minded friends and learn the routine, skills and responsibilities of keeping a horse at livery. Please see the livery package above for an idea of what the winter loan includes.
We have a number of well schooled horses and ponies available for winter loan between the 1st November and 30th March each year. The horses and ponies remain on livery at Argyll Adventure at a reduced full livery rate. We do all the work and you do all the riding. You can ride as often as you want through the loan period and the horse can be shared with a named friend. Please give Dilla a call or drop us an email for a copy of the terms and conditions of winter loan.
