Our English Plus Horse Riding programme caters for most levels of ability, from those who have limited riding experience, to students who are accomplished riders.
Alongside English language tuition, students will receive 15 hours per week of professional equestrian instruction (or 7.5 hours per week if choosing Intensive English, available at Worth School only).
Our team of experienced riding instructors take great care in matching riders and horses, so that during their stay, students gain in confidence and riding ability, as well as improve their English language skills in and around the stable yards.
Riders at our horse riding summer camps are assessed and, depending on their ability, spend the week receiving tuition in dressage and showjumping as well as hacking across the beautiful English countryside.
All our training builds towards competition day each Friday, when riders compete in a dressage test and on a show jumping course (ability specific), starting with poles on the ground and building upwards for the more experienced riders.
A key element of our programme is stable and horse management. It is part of the daily routine and students learn to groom and prepare their horses for riding, as well as studying the names of the equipment they are using and the points of the horse – all in English.
Students require a minimum of one year’s riding experience to book this course.
Please note that if you would like your child to wear a body protector, they will need to bring their own.
