Bryanston Equestrian Centre was established approximately 20 years ago and since then has undergone considerable expansion in terms of facilities, the number of pupils riding and horses kept at livery.
The 25 stables form part of the original Bryanston House designed by Wyatt in the mid-18th century and form an attractive horseshoe shape around a central courtyard.
The Equestrian Centre facilities consist of:
a newly refurbished 35m x 75m outdoor arena
20m x 35m outdoor arena
35m x 20m indoor school
cross country schooling fields with fences ranging from 2ft to 3ft 3in
full set of show jumps
Riding at Bryanston
The Equestrian Centre at Bryanston is open to the entire school body; those who wish to partake in a weekly lesson to those with international ambition.
From the spring term of D, pupils with their own horses are able to ride as their main sport. We actively encourage our riders to embrace other aspects of school life and are more than happy for them to be involved in other sports. Our riders have the opportunity to work closely with the Performance Sport Programme and learn about the biomechanics involved in equestrianism and how they can use this knowledge to develop and improve.
Our small but select coaching staff are BHS qualified and offer a rounded, friendly equestrian education complimented by a team of clinicians who attend regularly and are competing nationally and internationally in their specific field, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and experience.
We believe that our riding opportunities enable pupils not only to become better riders and horsemen and women, but also teach valuable life skills and mirror Bryanston’s guiding principles of:
- Breadth of ambition
- Humanity and Family
Pupils are supported and encouraged to compete, and riders enjoy NSEA (interschools) competitions along with affiliated and unaffiliated events in all disciplines.
