Blair Atholl's equestrian heritage stretches back to when the Goodman family acquired the farm in the mid 1960’s. During this time Blair Atholl’s most famous equine resident was Peralta, who retired here as a stud stallion. Peralta was one of the best sprinters of the time in South Africa and was bred by Derek Goodman.
After the Player family acquired Blair Atholl, they not only retained the beauty of the property, but also further developed the stables and paddocks.
Today the tradition is as strong as ever, with resident Stable and Equestrian Manager Brendan McNevin. The stables are located in the centre of Blair Atholl just off the main boulevard.
Aside from the stables, the Equestrian facilties offer a jumping and lunge arenas, a working track, and an assortment of lessons, pony camps, and gymkhanas for both amateur and skilled riders.
