Riding For All Levels
Riders can bring their horse or pony to school - or loan one of the Stonar stable. We have options for riders of all levels, whether you're simply looking for a weekly lesson, or if you’re a serious competitor. Our dedicated equestrian staff and performance coaching will help you to further your ambitions.
The Equestrian Centre is at the heart of the school, enabling pupils to easily access the stables throughout the day, even if that’s to visit and pat their favourite pony during morning break or lunchtime.
From livery and loan, horsemanship to time management, Director Ellie Halsey explains more about Stonar’s facilities and the life skills that pupils gain from our equestrian school.
Stonar is widely known as the best equestrian school in the UK."
