Horses are able to give immediate, honest, and non-judgmental feedback on how our behavior is being interpreted by others.

Experienced trauma therapists use appropriate strategies to provide the insight needed to support the process of change and subsequent recovery.

Programs include Horses for the Troops for veterans, first responders and their families, Horse ChAT for kids and teens and a bespoke option designed for individuals or small groups.

All funds raised by the Buccleuch Property Challenge will go directly towards funding these programmes.

Following the cancellation of the 2022 Challenge due to the death of Her Majesty The Queen, Buccleuch Property and Horse Time have been heartened by the generous donations from Challenge participants and supporters raising over £6,000.
