Hi, we are brother and sister Bethany and Jacob. We run a dog boarding kennels and equestrian stunt team in the Borders of Scotland. We set up our business in 2008 after 9 years living in France and doing our horse entertainment/circus/re enactment type shows. While we were living in France our parents were signed up to HelpX and had many interesting people staying with us.

The dog boarding kennels started because our grandparents have a kennels. We do our horse shows all over the UK and Europe mainly in the summer months with our 14 horses, the shows include lots of different skills including jousting, combat,fire breathing, circus tricks, dressage, stunt riding, dog training, live music and many more! Our shows are set to music and include costumes and props made by us.

We are vegetarian and don't smoke, people are most welcome when they are similar to us. We were taught at home all our lives, we are now 25 and 26. Anyone who comes to stay will find a friendly relaxed atmosphere, with about 6 or 7 young people, although space is limited, we have recently built a couple of basic rooms above our stables for working students, but you might end up having to sleep on the floor or in a caravan (bedding provided of course!)

The main things we need help with are: Looking after dogs in the kennels ie; walking them and cleaning up after them. General care of the gardens and 75 acres of grassland,fencing and track making. Caring for the horses and helping in our shows, the smallest of skills you have could be included!

We love to meet new people and hear about their lives and the places they have travelled, we all work hard and have a good laugh while we are at it.

Please if you say you are coming and your plans change, please just let me know. Its not fair to ask a host to prepare for your arrive and you don't show and other helper may have missed out too. A simple "sorry, my plans have changed so I can't make it now" message will suffice. But if you agree to come and fail to show without some kind of cancellation message, then I will have to give you a "No Show" reference on your profile.

Please come along and get involved!
