We offer the opportunity to enter three competitions held throughout the year.

These are team sports consisting of up to four students.

If we don’t have enough riders for a competition, we enter a composite team. This is usually with either Papanui High School and/or Cashmere High School but can be with any other school in Canterbury.

Our results over the years have been consistently very good.

It is the riders responsibility to have competed previously at the level entered but there is definitely room for new riders to join in. The teams accommodate all riders and all abilities and are very low key at the beginning level.

The emphasis is on participation and having fun.

Get Involved Stay Involved.

All competitions are held at ESNZ National Equestrian Centre, McLeans Island Road.
