NERC was founded in 1950 and has been affiliated to British Riding Clubs (BRC) for most of its 60 years! An active and competitive club (NERC has featured in BRC's top ten riding clubs UK-wide), we currently have around 35 members of all ages and abilities. Members are based all over Aberdeenshire with most club activities taking place within a 20-mile radius of Aberdeen.
At NERC, we believe (as per our constitution) in promoting good fellowship and in improving the standard of riding and horsemanship - both on and off the horse! Throughout the year we offer regular training sessions as well as specialist dressage, show jumping and cross country clinics. NERC only uses top quality trainers and training is subsidised to members.
We will be running several Dressage and showjumping competitions during winter 2016/2017. These will be suitable for all levels of experience including grass root riders/nervous riders. We also run a range of other competitions, including two very successful showing shows, throughout the rest of the year.
There will be regular dressage and jumping training throughout the winter at indoor venues. There will also be arena eventing training and Pauline Kidd sessions. Keep an eye on our training page for what's on.
NERC also participates in lots of team competitions and are always keen to get members of all levels involved.
