Our Riding School is British Horse Society Approved

Horse Riding

The Riding School has recently been awarded a 5* rating and, whilst independent of the School, is conveniently located on campus. Stables accommodate 25 horses and ponies, providing lessons ranging from beginners to Pony Club B test level.

The Queen Margaret’s Riding School is ideally located on our campus near Red House and offers riding lessons to girls of all standards. The lessons cover many disciplines, including Dressage, Showjumping, Cross Country and Gymkhana skills. Groups are small and beginners or nervous riders can be taught individually until they are confident enough to join a group.

Horse Riding

Horse Riding

QM has a rich and successful history of being home to some of England’s most accomplished young equestrians. Riding lessons are available (at an additional cost) and focus on Dressage, Show Jumping, Cross Country and Gymkhana skills, with Hacking taking place at the nearby Escrick Park Estate. Groups are small and beginners can be taught individually until confident enough to join a group. Riders are actively engaged in the Eventing circuit, attending competitions throughout the country. Competitions are held during the year and ponies are available for the girls who ride at School. The emphasis is on sportsmanship and fun, but they provide an opportunity to practise skills learnt in lessons and to become familiar with the relevant rules and traditions.

I love the vibrant, yet homely atmosphere and being able to bring my horse to School with me is a real plus!
