For students who have experience of working with horses and riding, and are able to transport their own horse(s), Woodbridge offers equestrian lessons and training for students from Prep through to Senior School and into Sixth Form.

Shows and competitions

The equestrian teams compete in many competitions across the country throughout the year. Through these shows and competitions, the School regularly qualifies for and participates in county championships, and our teams have reached championship finals consistently since 2013.

Riders from Woodbridge School regularly take part and compete in Show Jumping, Dressage, Eventers Challenge and Jumping With Style.

Weekly training

Our dedicated and successful Equestrian squad train weekly on a Tuesday evening, and pupils have easy, local access to the high-quality equestrian facilities at Martley Hall, near Woodbridge.
