Stable Life's Blog

Galloping into a brighter future! Welcome to the Stable Life blog, where the magic of horses meets the resilience of children. Here, you'll find updates on our equine therapy programmes, heartwarming stories of transformation, and a peek behind the scenes at our peaceful sanctuary. Stay tuned for news, events, announcements, and all the hoof-tastic ways we're changing young lives. Saddle up and join the journey!

This week is #mentalhealthawerenessweek and this year's theme is Movement: Moving for our mental health. Moving more can increase your energy, reduce stress and anxiety, and boost your self-esteem. We certainly see this with the young people who we work with here at Stable Life. All our ponies also play a vital part in supporting the mental health of our young people, and we coudn't do the work we do without these special equine team members.

Over the last year our pony herd has reduced as Rose and Harry went off for their well earned retirements, and this year we will see a further reduction as a couple of our other ponies also look to retire.

Therefore we need to find a few more equine team members to enable us to continue to deliver our services, and we need your help on this.

We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as one of the charities to be supported through the Big Give #Kind2Mind campaign. This means they will double donations that we receive from now up until the 28th May.

Therefore if we reach our target of £2,500 over the next two weeks that money will will be doubled to £5,000 and we will be able to go out and find a new pony to help us to do all the work we are passionate about here at Stable Life.

If you are able to donate anything to help us reach our target and help us keep the herd at Stable Life big enough to support our projects we would be forever grateful. Click here to donate:

Thank you so much

stable life Scottish Borders

Hello and thanks for visiting our new Stable Life website - we have helped hundreds of young people across the Scottish Borders in over a decade, as well as launching as a commerical riding school and helping lots of people to learn to ride, thanks to our lovely horses and ponies. This month we have relaunched our website with the aim of explaining what we offer here in terms of the charity - our equine facilitated wellness projects - and our riding school which offers horse riding lessons and fun clubs and hacks for our Hoofbeats members.

Our new site has a full explanation about how our charity's project works to support the young people of the Scottish Borders who are facing challenging situations. You can find out how to refer a young person to us so we can find out whether they're suitable for Stable Life, and begin the process of working together, or you can find out how to get onto our riding school system and start book lessons and hacks in our glorious countryside.

Finally you can hop online and spend some time getting to know our most important team members, our equine friends! See pictures of our ponies and horses, and if you want to you can even sponsor a pony!

We hope you find it easy to get hold of all the information you've been looking for here, and we look forward to seeing you at the yard soon.

A huge thanks to Ivan and all his colleagues at Plexus Corp. for raising an amazing £3,684 for Stable Life. We were delighted to hear that we had been chosen as a charity that you wanted to support and blown away by the amount you raised! It really will help change the lives of young people in the Scottish Borders.
