Our equestrian centre was opened in 2003, where we focus on safety and training for our residential students. The facility was set up so our students could combine their love of equestrian with their academic life.
Students come from all over Australia and overseas to participate in our Equestrian programme, which is based around the three Olympic disciplines of dressage, showjumping and eventing and is considered to be one of the best school based Equestrian programmes nationally.
Students join the programme with varied levels of equestrian skills and goals, wishing to combine their equestrian passion with their academic studies. The students in the residential equestrian programme receive agistment for their horse and coaching twice a week in small group sessions and the opportunity to ride before and after school.
We also develop our student’s knowledge in horse health and care. Our Equestrian Team has been highly successful in Interschool competitions, as will as individuals, when competing at official EA event and other equestrian competitions. Not all of our riders wish to compete but they all have a passion for their horses and developing their knowledge.
The SCOTS PGC College Equestrian Centre is located on the main College campus and allows our equestrian students to access the facilities with minimum disruption to their daily school routine.
