Scottish Borders history is strongly linked with horses: Border Reivers, Common Ridings, point to point races, eventing, racing, polo, endurance, vaulting and pony club activities. In fact, there are more horses per head of population in the Borders than anywhere else in Scotland.
Kelso Races is the home of National Hunt Racing in the Scottish Borders. Kelso Racecourse is the ideal place to visit for a first-time race goer or a seasoned professional.
The Scottish Borders provides excellent facilities for those who wish to have a go at riding.
