Kilgraston's Equestrian Centre

We have some exciting news to share – Kilgraston’s Equestrian Centre has a new stable block. Completed this week, Kilgraston’s Equestrian Manager, Rachael McLean is delighted with the results and tells us more about the Equestrian Centre and its facilities:

“The Equestrian Centre is home to up to 25 horses and ponies all year round, around half of which are owned by the school and used in riding lessons, camps and pony days, and the other half belong to girls at Kilgraston who keep their horses on livery with us. Come rain, hail, snow and COVID, the horses and ponies still need cared for daily with feeding, exercise and regular welfare checks carried out throughout.

“The equestrian centre has doubled in size over the last seven years, and we are always looking to improve the facilities that we can offer to our students. Work has just been completed on a new stable block of four stables, meaning we can now house 16 horses indoors along with more than 20 acres of grazing with field shelters in each paddock. We have students bringing their horses from as far afield as Germany, Orkney and the Isle of Man so these extra stables play a vital part making sure we can accommodate their needs.

“We are very much looking forward to the students returning to school when restrictions allow, and being able to restart lessons and show off our new facilities.”
