|Based in the glorious countryside north of Kelso, NEC is a well establshed and respected equestrian centre run by proprietor Alison Allan for over 30 years.
The riding centre caters for all ages and abilities, offering an indoor school with viewing gallery, a large outdoor school, self-contained stabling and easy lorry parking. These
facilities are also available to hire, which can be particularly useful during the winter months. We specialise in building confidence and can also help you with your own pony. If you are new to us,or any key information has changed, please download & fill in a Rider Registration Form here.
Nenthorn has over 60 horses, including some on permanent loan, as well as about 10 liveries. All of them are versatile and all go competing, so clients can ride quality, well-schooled horses and never have a horse that just spends its days simply doing lessons. We pride ourselves on the standard of care & the quality of life our horses receive.
Alison and Chief Instructor Jenny Christie, along with well-trained and appropriately qualified staff and helpers, have a wealth of equine experience between them. Ongoing formal training and qualifications through the ABRS scheme is offered to all staff and customers.
The programme is very active, with varied opportunities eg Winter Show Jumping & Dressage, Courses, Guided Rides, & hire for Common Ridings & Hunting etc. NEC is also a Pony Club Centre with over 40 members, giving children who do not own their own ponies a wider experience of horsemanship. There is also an opportunity to lease ponies on a yearly contract.
New for 2012 we also have a riding club specialising in novice riders and happy hackers over the age of 16. Click here for further information.
Please contact Alison or Jenny for more information – we look forward to welcoming you!
