Our aim at the farm is to share our passion and knowledge of our Clydesdale Heavy Horses with you. The Blackstone centre was established to secure a way to care for our growing Scottish rare breed family, to give you a chance to experience the Clydesdale horse magic, learn about their lives on the farm and witness first hand these magnificent animals, so the Clydesdale Experience was born.
Without you and visitors like you helping along the way, by participating and spreading our Clydesdale Horse magic, Blackstone would not be able to support all our beautiful Clydesdales and farm animals in their forever home.
Your Experience is tailored to you, using your time to work, ride or drive our Clydesdale Heavy Horses. Try your hand at washing, grooming, mucking out, tacking up, bareback riding, herding on horseback, walking and feeding the animals.
Interacting with our Clydesdales, Heilan Coos, Alpaca's and Mischievous Donkey while meeting the farm animals giving you an insight into their daily routine and lives.
This is your experience and will vary depending on your choices, skills, requirements, weather and the farms needs.
