Strathorn Farm Stables and Riding School
Virtual Talk by Ruth Skinner – Wednesday 16th June – 7pm
Strathorn Farm Stables and Riding School is owned and operated by Ruth and George Skinner. The Skinner family have a proud history of working with horses that stretches back hundreds of years. Strathorn has been home to The Skinner Family and their horses since 1939. In 1991 George and Ruth decided it was time to pass on their vast knowledge and experience by opening up a stables and riding school to offer lessons in all aspects of horse craft.
Ruth will speak about the riding school, horses, and her work with Riding for the Disabled.

It depicts the journey made by Jacobite, Bonnie Prince Charlie from France through the Scottish Highlands to victory at the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745.
