Our dedicated Equine Centre ensures Sparsholt provides OUTSTANDING teaching and learning in Equine as endorsed by Ofsted in 2014. A British Horse Society approved exam centre, we have also been awarded British Dressage Venue of the Year for two consecutive years and hosted the Australian Paralympic Equestrian team for pre training prior to the 2012 Olympics.

With exceptional facilities and courses up to Masters level, our students learn in an environment dedicated to success. A range of short courses are also held at the Equine Centre, meaning you don’t have to be a full-time student to benefit from all we have to offer. We also play host to regular showjumping and dressage events.

We’ve jumped to the next level of equestrian research with our new Racewood Equestrian Simulator! Find out more and make an enquiry on public hire.
