From 2022, we will be offering a range of residential equine assisted services and training courses at Whisgills Farm. Groups, individuals and families can stay our beautiful centre in the Scottish Borders to experience the therapeutic benefits of horses firsthand or learn how to offer those services to others. Accomodation choices include a rustic bunkhouse with a bar area, showers and shared sleeping area which is ideal for families or groups of friends as well as ensuite rooms in a Gerogian farmhouse for those who want a little more peace and quiet.
All of our courses and residential services are fully catered with healthy, nutritious local food which includes free range eggs from our own ducks and chickens. In addition to miles of beautiful off-road forest trails for hacking, walking or mountain-biking, we have an arena, large yard area and stabling for 12 horses. There are nine acres of grazing with smaller paddocks where horses visiting for ohysical or behavioural rehab can stay. All of our fields have both man-made and natural shelter. Our horses live out as much as possible in stable herds.
