The Academy offers schooling to Equestrians in a small and caring environment, while allowing them the opportunity to pursue their Show Jumping, Dressage or Eventing passions.
The Equestrian Academy is open to day scholars or boarders, with stabling available. Although the focus of this school is to facilitate both academic and riding endeavours, recreational riders who would like to attend this picturesque school are encouraged and welcome to enrol in both the schooling and boarding.
