Equestrian Centre

BCA Equestrian Centre is a leading equine training college in the Thames Valley. Here at BCA, we run a range of equine-related courses, with an emphasis on training in a practical environment to prepare our students for employment within the equine industry.

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.

Our facilities include a large indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, 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 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. If you would like further details then please do not hesitate to contact the Yard Manager; Lizzie Ragg on the details below.
