Welcome to Hendersyde Park

Hendersyde ParkThe Agnew family arrived at Hendersyde in the summer of 1997 when Charlotte, our eldest, was nine, Georgina six and Alexandra four.

Much has happened over the past twenty one years! The house and grounds were in a poor state of repair but as the children all arrived with their ponies, there was an incentive to use the park and create a cross country course.

We began with small hunter trial courses which then developed into Pony Club Area Trials, followed by fifteen years of running a British Eventing Event. This included the introduction of the Scottish Championships for BE levels 90 and 100 followed by the addition of the Scottish Novice Championship a few years later.

One of the most important elements of the horse trials has been our ability to raise money for local charities; we are delighted to say that we have raised £60,000 over the past fifteen years for charities ranging from the MRI Scanner for the BGH, The Margaret Kerr Unit, The Borders’ Children’s Charity, The Murray House Appeal for the new dementia unit in Kelso and also Doddie Weir.

With this in mind, we are looking at an exciting new development for 2019 when we start our ‘unaffiliated’ event the first weekend in August. We plan to hold a 3DE at 80/90/100 level, alongside our one day classes at the same levels, with the aim of raising further funds for Murray House.

Alongside the Event in August, we are also able to offer the opportunity to train with BE Accredited Coaches during the year and would suggest that you look at the clinic page on this website for available dates.

We look forward to welcoming you all to Hendersyde in 2019.
