Kilgraston Equestrian Centre

Kilgraston is the only school in Scotland with equestrian facilities on campus, giving pupils the unique ability to ride regularly, on-site, as an extra-curricular activity.

Lessons take place daily after school and at weekends in our 60 x 40m floodlit arena. Whether aspiring to ride for the school team or having never ridden before there is something for everyone. All levels are catered for from beginners to competitive riders and sessions are tailored according to the abilities of each rider. The emphasis is on progression, variety and fun.

Lesson numbers are restricted to ensure a high level of tuition and our riding school horses and ponies are hand picked for their excellent temperaments. Our teaching staff posses a wealth of experience and are all fully qualified.

All of the equestrian staff love working with the girls and ponies, aiming to boost confidence in the more nervous riders and pushing the more experienced riders to progress and develop further. We offer training for BHS Exams up to BHSAI level and progressive riding tests. BHS Exams are globally recognised across all aspects of the equestrian industry and training is provided by our three in-house BHS Accredited Professional Coaches. Training is on offer to members of the senior school.

Kilgraston is at the heart of schools equestrian events in Scotland. We host the annual Kilgraston Scottish Schools Equestrian Championships. This combined training, team event is always very highly contested, with up to 25 schools vying for the prestigious championships in each of the three age groups.
