The British Horse Society (BHS) is to open a new operations centre in Scotland in June in a move that will provide a prestigious base for The Society, its stakeholders, and the general public in the northern half of the British Isles to experience and champion best practice equestrianism.
With over 8,500 members in Scotland, the Society is keen to host live events, when Covid restrictions allow, as well as providing a centre for support and learning. The facility is part of Stirling Agricultural Centre, just 30 minutes’ drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, with excellent transport links. Set in 52 acres, it comprises offices with meeting facilities for up to 20 people, exhibition space for up to 500 and land for outdoor events and activities.
Helene Mauchlen, National Manager in Scotland for The British Horse Society said, “We’re the largest equine membership in Scotland and we want to grow our offering and membership in Scotland. Stirling Agricultural Centre is the ideal place for us to showcase what we do, provide a resource centre across welfare, education, access and safety, and also to hold live events as and when Covid restrictions allow.”
Stirling Agricultural Centre is an established hub for rural activities, hosting biannual bull sales, The Blackface Sheep National Show, International Angling Festival and Stars of the Future (youngstock show).
Our new address will be, The British Horse Society Scotland, Suite A3, Stirling Agricultural Centre, Stirling FK9 4RN
