Eat, Sleep, Ride, CIC
An empowered community committed to wellness, development, inclusivity, and sustainability
We are an accessible, community-led social enterprise based on the South East Scottish coastline operating from a 24-acre off-grid farm. We support people on their journey to wellness and empowerment through therapeutic, educational and community initiatives.
We invest in children, families and adults so they can improve their physical and mental health through connection to their community whilst developing strong coping strategies, equipping them to live fulfilled lives with stronger relationships.
Our custom-built off-grid site invites the community to experience our outdoor learning, educational and development activities, and equine experiences whilst reducing the impact on the environment.
ESR operates in 2 markets: one for our services providing therapeutic, educational and community activities, the other providing a commercial sport, professional development packages and a venue for hire.
We offer a range of equine services such as ridden tuition, experience days, events and clinics, professional training pathways, arena hire, livery, clipping, horse training, backing, and rehabilitation services.
Eat Sleep Ride is the only organisation within a 50-mile radius to offer such an extensive range of social and professional development services.
At Eat Sleep Ride, we are motivated and driven by the impact of our activities and interventions. It’s the positive change we can see in people’s lives and all around us that is the most valuable and valued part of our work. So many people do not get the opportunity to thrive and make a difference to the environment around them, and we are proud to facilitate that change.

Through my journey at ESR, I transformed from a novice rider to a confident horse owner. Bobby's diverse experiences at ESR, coupled with my education, have prepared us for a fulfilling life together, demonstrating the significance of non-riding interactions from owners with their horses.
