Who We Are

Eat Sleep Ride is a vibrant community facility nestled on a solar-powered farm in East Berwickshire, along the picturesque south-south coastline of the Scottish Borders. Our mission is deeply rooted in harnessing the serene power of nature and the intuitive wisdom of our 18-strong herd of horses to foster therapeutic, educational, and professional growth.

At the heart of our ethos is a commitment to community cohesion, providing a sanctuary where experiential learning flourishes, empowering individuals and fortifying resilience.

Inspired by the natural leadership observed in our horses and the principles of biomimicry, we offer unique insights into shared leadership, teaching the art of attentive presence, clear direction-setting, energy understanding, and congruent behavior. This approach not only mirrors the harmonious dynamics within a horse herd but also translates into valuable life lessons for our community.

Our endeavours are supported by diverse commercial revenue streams, ensuring that Eat Sleep Ride continues to be a beacon of positive change and sustainable living.
