Our Equestrian Team is a very active group. The number of members is limited due to the amount of land available at the school to run the horses.
A part-time instructor oversees the operation of the club who tend to their horses and practise after school and then attend events at the Charters Towers Pony Club (located next to our paddocks), and at other venues.
We strongly recommend that students do not have a horse at school during the first semester of boarding for two major reasons:
• Students need time to find their own feet in boarding without the responsibility of looking after a horse.
• Some members discover they enjoy other school activities such as sport and music and have less time than expected to dedicate to the care of their horse, choosing to enjoy their riding as an “at home” experience.
Day students who own their own horse are also active members of our Equestrian Team.
