Horse riding is a popular activity offered at independent boarding schools across the UK at all levels. Facilities at our schools extend from small stables to nationally recognised equestrian centres; catering for complete beginners who wish to ride for pleasure to competent riders competing at a national level.
Equestrian boarding schools have their own ponies and horses, but also offer pupils the option to take their own (well behaved) pony or horse to school with them. All pupils can be involved in stable management and horse welfare including feeding, cleaning and grooming – a fantastic opportunity for any horse lover!
