Education Through Horses (ETH) is an educational, not-for-profit organisation which took over a neglected 7 acre farm at Banbury Hill, Sturminster Newton in 2017. Our vision is to provide opportunities for people of all ages to improve their physical and mental well-being by being with animals, growing food and simply spending time in the natural environment.

When we took over, the site was in rather a sorry state as it had been over-grazed and become cluttered with plastic, glass and barbed wire. The transformation continues this Spring with the planting of trees, bulbs and wild flowers.

There is a polytunnel, greenhouse and a vegetable plot with space for growing herbs, vegetables and native flowers.

We are delighted to have received funding to renovate the pond area and grateful to the Woodland Trust for the trees to enhance the land too.  We are looking for help from local people and organisations who are interested in giving nature a helping hand on Banbury Hill.

By helping nature to re-generate this site, we hope we can help people too!
