St Leonards is the perfect place for any aspiring young rider. In partnership with a family-run Edenside Riding Stables, situated just 10 minutes from the school’s campus, St Leonards pupils benefit from the full range of facilities, as well as lessons from experienced equestrian professionals.


Equestrian at st leonards

Horse riding is available as an after-school activity on a weekly basis for pupils in Years 8 – 13, with a focus on group lessons covering a range of disciplines. Riding is also offered as a Senior Games option for boys and girls in Years 11, 12 and 13. Individual lessons can be arranged, and livery is available by arrangement with Edenside. Stable management is also an option outside of the timetable, at the weekends – this can be requested.

Lessons at Edenside Stables generally cover:

  • Walking
  • Trotting
  • Cantering
  • Jumping
  • Focus on control, seat position, balance and terminology
  • Stable management
  • Horse care & grooming

Specialist instructors are available for riders who wish to advance in dressage, show jumping or cross country. Edenside also hosts monthly show jumping competitions, which St Leonards students are welcome to compete in, or simply spectate.

Some of our more experienced riders use Drumcarrow Equestrian, which is the home of Lohoar Sport Horses and is situated just two miles from St Andrews, for lessons and livery.
