We are now offering a variety of lessons and hacking for all ages and abilities. From Tiny Trotters, group lesson, individual and specialist tuition or a lesson on your own horse we aim to bring confidence to horse and rider. We can also offer lovely hacking over the rolling hills of the Borders on our safe schooled horses.

We now have over 15 horses of various shapes and sizes which you can meet here. All of them are versatile, schooled, safe and well behaved. We pride ourselves on the standard of care & the quality of life our horses receive.

Full &
Part Livery

Stable Life is able to offer full or part liveries. We offer a range of services which are flexible to ensure, if you are unable to attend to your horse, they are always looked after and cared for.

Our livery yard is a safe, caring and friendly environment where the safety and wellbeing of our horses and customers is paramount. The number of horses is limited to ensure clients can fully enjoy the facilities and that grazing paddocks aren’t overcrowded.

For the welfare of all our horses, we do insist that your horse is included in our structured worming program.
