Welcome to North East Scotland TREC (NEST)
We hope you find this website useful. We also use our Facebook page to promote events and share photos and experiences with other members Facebook page
NEST was started by a small group of novice TREC enthusiasts in the winter of 2008/09 to learn more about the sport and to encourage its growth in the North East of Scotland. It has gone from strength to strength and we currently have approximately 70 members. Some members are very competitive and have competed at the British Championships others are happy to potter along at their own speed, enjoying the ride.
NEST is a member club of TREC GB, the governing body for TREC in the UK.
TREC is a sport for all, any rider, any horse, any level. Something for everyone.
We hold various events at all levels including training days, training competitions, mini events and full two day qualifier competitions. We are affiliated to TREC GB and hold competitions towards the national TREC GB league as well as our own NEST members league. We try to make events accessible to all, so choose venues all over the North East from Huntly , Tomintoul to Deeside and many places in between.
Over the winter we normally run a training session once a month and a winter series competition once a month mainly at indoor venues. These have been very popular and great fun.
In the summer we try to hold
an event 1-2 times a month, we have been fortunate to be able to access some spectacular farm land, forest tracks and beaches.
We try to run a qualifier for the TREC GB National champions each year for those who would like to travel and compete at Championship level. It is still a fun social event for those that want to meet up with like minded people. With more members and helpers participating we are hoping to increase these events.
Placings for members from events attended during the year count towards our Points League, with trophies and prizes presented at the end of the year at the NEST Christmas Lunch, where we also run a raffle for local charities.
NEST also runs events to support the local RDA at Oyne.
