Established by Evelyn Aitken MBE in 1965, Fergushill Riding Stables has grown into the successful centre it is now.  

When Evelyn started the centre, she taught riders on her own BSJA jumping ponies and trained the local Pony Club games team. As well as this she produced show ponies at the highest level competing all over the country and at the Horse of the Year Show at Wembley. She became a BSPS star panel judge and has officiated at many major shows including The Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead and Horse of the Year Show.

Evelyn's daughters, Gillian and Phillipa took part in all equestrian activities and were members of many BSPS Scottish, Pony Club and Riding Club teams. Both regularly competed at HOYS and enjoy helping others fulfil their riding ambitions.

Fifty seven years after its opening FRS is a lively family run centre nurturing the talents of children and young people in the various disciplines of equestrianism, from the beginner to advanced riders.
