Due to the current rules from the Government and the British Horse Society to prevent the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus it is with regret that Rowanlea has been closed to the public and there are no lessons or teaching taking place until the restrictions have been lifted.
The majority of the horses have been put out to grass and only horses or ponies at Livery are on the premises. Staff and the owners or the horse or pony Carer is permitted to be in the yard and only for a limited time at each visit to maintain social distancing. NO friends or family or children are permitted to accompany the person attending to the liveried horse or pony when they are in the yard. If there is anyone else accompanying the Carer they should stay in their vehicle or in the car park and NOT come into the yard where others might be working.
The tack shop and feed shop are also closed for drop in visitors. Sales of animal feed and care products can be made by contacting David Conchie at the number shown to arrange a collection time or there is a delivery service being offered for animal feed, at a small cost, to addresses within a 10 mile radius of Rowanlea. Call David for more information on this number

Please respect the above and also abide by the rules of the Government by staying inside and making as few journeys as possible.
The sooner we beat this epidemic the sooner we get back to doing what we all love doing, riding and being around horses and ponies

2nd January 2020 Trek marks the start of 55th Anniversary Year
The Annual Rowanlea 2nd January Trek had a special significance this year as it heralded in the 55th Anniversary year of Rowanlea Riding School, founded in 1965 by David Conchie Snr. and carried on today by his daughter Irene and son David Jr.
For the past few years the Annual Trek has raised money for a local charity or good cause and this your the proceeds from the Trek are going towards the provision of another public defibrillator in the area.
This year 35 horses and riders took part in the event which raised £360 towards a defibrillator. The after trek food and commemorative rosettes were provided by the riding school. Kind weather made the whole event more enjoyable for the participants as there was some concern before the start but all worked out well in the end.
