Tannoch Stables Riding School & Livery Yard

Tannoch Stables are proud to be an official Changing Lives through Horses centre partner. We are currently the only stables in Scotland who can deliver The British Horse Society (BHS) programme which aims to improve the lives of disengaged young people who, for various reasons, are at risk of becoming excluded.

The programme gives young people, regardless of their background, the opportunity to develop their essential life skills enabling them to return to education and/or employment.

To find out more about how the programme is transforming lives and how you can get involved, visit the BHS Changing Lives website or give us a call.

Nearly one in ten 16-18 year olds are not in education, employment or training (NEET), while one in four young people struggle with low self-esteem, wellbeing and mental health problems. Changing Lives through Horses has the potential to reach these people at a critical point in their lives.


Using horses as the inspiration for change, the programme provides an alternative learning environment to mainstream education. The skills developed through the programme meet the requirements of ongoing education and training, employers and participants.

With the horse at the core of the learning environment, young people develop a variety of life skills ranging from everyday communication through to teamwork and understanding responsibility.


Call Meaghan or Dawn at Tannoch Stables on 01236 733424 for a chat if you would like to discuss the opportunity to refer a young person that you work with or care for, or alternatively email enquiries@tannoch.co.uk. There is no minimum or maximum age restrictions and all cases will be considered on an individual basis.
