Equine Centre

Equestrian Centre

The Equestrian Centre at BCA has stabling for over 50 horses and is approved by the British Horse Society (BHS) as a ‘Where to Train’ centre up to BHSAI. We regular host BHS examinations up to Stage 3 and the Preliminary Teaching Test and encourage all our learners to develop their practical skills alongside their vocational qualification.

The horses are predominantly stabled and cared for on a working livery basis which enables students of every level to develop their practical skills under the supervision of experienced BHS qualified staff. The horses are selected to ensure that we develop the student’s skills in handling a range of horses in preparation for working within the industry.

 

 

Facilities

Our facilities include a 60x40m fully lit indoor arena,  60x40m (floodlit) and 60x30m outdoor arenas all with excellent waxed sand surfaces, extensive grass rides, BE cross country course and a whole range of equipment used for practical sessions to allow students to develop the necessary skills associated with working in the equine industry. Regular on-site competitions give students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience within a commercial setting. We offer fantastic value for money, private hire sessions throughout the week, and our shared hire option is becoming increasingly popular with regular clients. Private Hire is suitable for lessons or clinics, and includes the use of jumping equipment and/or dressage boards and letters (set up and dismantle required), whereas Shared Hire is a great option for those happy to ride on the flat with others. Please get in touch via equine-enquiries@bca.ac.uk or 01628 827529 for availability and booking.   

Livery

We are able to offer a competitive price for working livery which includes the use of our excellent facilities on site. Your horse will be cared for seven days of the week including grooming, trimming, clipping and tack cleaning alongside being exercised by the students within taught sessions Monday to Friday during term time.
