Equestrianism

Equestrianism is a core feature of Abbots Bromley School. The outstanding facilities on site include both an indoor and an outdoor arena, stabling for up to 21 horses and extensive grazing. The Centre is managed by AB Equine and is open throughout the year to students of Abbots Bromley School and the wider community.

A selection of horses and ponies are available for lessons, and students are welcome to bring their own horses to school (stabling permitting). AB Equine offers a range of livery packages; from full and part livery to working livery for suitable horses and ponies.

Lessons are available from three fully qualified BHS instructors at all levels – from beginners through to the more experienced rider. Tuition for BHS Examinations, Pony Club Badges and the BTEC Level Three in Horse Management are also undertaken throughout the school year.

Students with their own horses and ponies are welcomed to the school teams – to compete and represent Abbots Bromley School at NSEA events, in show jumping and dressage.

Internal competitions encourage riders of a more recreational preference to come along and have a go!

School holidays offer the chance to join in with any of the Fun Days, Instructional Days or lessons offered by AB Equine.

Abbots Bromley School has its own on site Equestrian Centre and riding has been a core feature of the school for since the 1980's.The outstanding facilities include both indoor and outdoor schools, stabling for up to 30 horses and extensive paddocking. AB Equine now manage the facility on behalf of the school and are contactable throughout the year.

Riders (both internal and external) have the ability tobring their own horse or pony to schoolfor lessons, but we do have a number of our own which can be used instead. Whether pupils are complete beginners, wanting to ride for fun or are already riding competitively, our equestrian education will continue their riding development.

Therefore, we offer a variety of options for riders of different levels, whether you're simply looking for a weekly lesson, or if you’re undertaking the Level 3 BTEC in Horse Management the school can help tailor your needs accordingly.

A coaching system underpinned by strong fundamental techniques provides mentoring for young riders and individual development plans for more the advanced riders, enhanced by our three fully qualified BHS instructors and live in staff.

There are regular opportunities to compete both at school and externally. School teams are frequently successful at NSEA competitions at both local and regional levels.
