Where our horses come first! From our base at Hetlandhill, Carrutherstown our main objective is to have a cheery and experienced team of staff helping to produce healthy and happy horses to give patient owners the best chance of winning!
We can offer first class facilities for both Flat and National Hunt enthusiasts and their horses. Iain welcomes horses from either discipline and enjoys training both.
This isn’t the first time Iain has been at Hetlandhill. After taking part in the Scottish Borders Common Riding’s, Pony Racing and riding in Flapping Races as a boy, Iain concentrated on becoming a jockey. His career started with Mick Naughton in Yorkshire before coming to Hetlandhill as a Conditional Jockey to Scottish Champion Trainer Len Lungo here at Hetlandhill. A lot of what Iain learned with Len, has been carried forward to his training techniques today. From Len’s, Iain then went on to work for Yorkshire Trainer, Ferdy Murphy before coming back to Scotland to work for Peter Monteith. Laterally he rode freelance for Scottish and Northern Trainers including Ali Whillans. Iain’s experience as a jockey helps him greatly in his training career.
This is our first significant step into race horse ownership and Iain and Val and the rest of the team have been great support throughout. We have always received a warm welcome when visiting the stables and have a good open relationship with them regarding all matters relating to our horse.
We would thoroughly recommend IJR to anyone interested in race horse ownership.
Patience, Progressive, Plucky, Planning and Positivity - these are some of attributes team Iain Jardine Racing have that brings them Success.
I have been with Iain since he took out a license at Hawick. The facilities he has now at Carrutherstown are second to none. Having worked with Lenny Lungo, he makes full use of the facilities he has with success. He is not frightened to run his horses at big and small tracks on both National Hunt and on the flat. I wish him and Val all the luck and good fortune.
