The Equine Centre is a British Horse Society (BHS) approved examination centre endorsed by the ‘Where to Train’ guide. Horses are carefully selected by either purchase or loan to provide students with the opportunity to develop a range of riding skills and provide a diverse research population for projects and dissertations.
A range of affiliated and unaffiliated show jumping and dressage events are hosted at the Equine Centre throughout the year.
In 2012, the Australian Paralympic Equestrian Team choose our Equine Centre as their base for their pre-London Olympic Games training. It has also hosted research by world famous equestrian expert Monty Roberts.
