On arrival at the centre you will be greeted by one of our Blackstone family members where you will discuss what you will be doing on your unique time with us, conduct the essential COVID and safety briefing then get you kitted out with hi-vis waistcoat and a safety hat if required

Our aim is to give you the chance to get a taste for what life is like looking after and preparing some of our amazing Clydesdale horses and other farm animals by getting hands-on.

This is a very individual experience and will vary depending on your requirements, weather and the farms needs.

Your Experience is tailored for you at Blackstone Farm. Pick your time scale 1 or 2 hours at the farm, 2, 3 or 4 hours Estate/woodland riding or 2 hour riding on the beach.

For example at the farm with your time you can enjoy interacting with all the farm animals, work with the Clydesdales in harness on the cart, ride in saddle or drive with our carriage. Halter Carlos and Hayden our Alpaca boys, Bubbles the Mischievous Donkey or Bachy the feisty Highland Coo and take her for a walk. Assist in washing, grooming, mucking out, tacking up and feeding the animals, giving you an insight into their lives.

 

For experienced riders why not try your hand at herding on horseback, bareback riding, Boswell Estate ride or Beach ride.

 

We are very flexible and try not to have a set routine as everybody has a different idea of what fun is!

If you don’t like something while visiting, we can mix it up.

 

All participants are accompanied by an experienced handler whether on farm, off farm , beginner or experienced.
