Horse riding

We welcome responsible horse riders, please see our guide - From the horse's mouth (PDF, 735kb).

We have a network of designated paths, allowing riders to enjoy an off-road hack. Our facilities include;

  • parking
  • mounting blocks
  • easy open gates.

The park links into the Irvine and Kilwinning New Town Trail, a 12 mile route following the river valleys.

Park staff are working in partnership with the British Horse Society to make improvements in the horse riding facilities. This long term project involves:

  • cutting back overhanging branches
  • repairs to fencing
  • bridleway improvements

Permits

The park operates a permit system. Please complete and return a horse permit (Word, 249kb) form along with;

  • proof of third party public liability insurance 
  • 2 passport sized photographs.

There is no charge for a horse permit.
