KC Horse Riding
KC Horse Riding is open to all pupils – pupils do not need to have their own pony, so it is a great opportunity for girls and boys who are interested in learning how to ride and look after horses. KC Horse Riding is an approved Pony Club centre, and pupils who ride with us may, if they wish, join the Pony Club and work to achieve lots of different badges (such as mucking out, grooming, horse behaviour, colours and markings), certificates and tests, incorporating horse care and riding.
Kent College has a horse riding team that competes at National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) events including show-jumping, eventers challenge and arena eventing. The team regularly qualifies and competes at the NSEA regional and national events and has won a variety of awards.
We offer term-time riding lessons on Saturdays and Sundays and we also run holiday Pony days, as well as specific days for Pony Club members. Horse riding hats to current British Standards are available to use in all sizes, body protectors and boots may also be borrowed subject to availability but it is recommended that you have your own footwear.
