Taking the scenic route

AFTER a successful 2010 season and a long-drawn out winter, the Borders branch of the Scottish Endurance Riding Club is running a series of local pleasure rides over some of the most stunning scenery in the region during 2011.

Easy routes of 10 to 15 miles are open to those either wanting to try endurance or just enjoy the scenery to get all horse riders out and about.
