The skills and techniques required in equestrianism go hand-in-hand with many other sporting activities. Riders develop skills in planning and organisation as well as team work and resilience. We are fortunate to have many fantastic riding opportunities in the area and Martley Hall, where student training takes place, is a beautiful, modern arena with first-class facilities.
Riding and jumping at the top of their class
With specialist coaches for show-jumping and dressage, our teams have qualified and competed in every national final for these areas, as well as Eventers’ Challenge and ‘Jumping With Style’.
Our dedicated and successful Equestrian squad train weekly, and pupils have easy, local access to the high-quality equestrian facilities at Martley Hall, near Woodbridge.
The equestrian teams meet and compete in many competitions across the country throughout the year, including but not limited to the NSEA Eventers’ Challenge and ‘Jumping with Style’, displaying excellence and professionalism in all their events.
