Welcome to Whitesands Equestrian

Welcome to Whitesands Equestrian. Whitesands is the UK’s first Centre of Légèreté and is a beautiful, quiet, purpose built yard set in a stunning East Lothian coastal location just off the A1 near Dunbar. It has direct access to the beach, miles of off road hacking in the surrounding countryside and 20 acres of well fenced paddocks on well drained sandy soil.

We have a holistic approach to caring for horses and the yard is run according to ethical, classical principles. Everyone on the yard is here because of their shared interest in doing the best for their horse and we pride ourselves on our welcoming, supportive atmosphere.




    Our clinics are open to anybody and are the best way of learning, both from the saddle but also from the ground with structured lectures and dismounted bodywork sessions. All lessons are from Catherine herself
