At Enniskillen Campus you’ll find indoor and outdoor arenas for all aspects of equitation. In the racing yard we give potential jockeys invaluable experience in handling and riding racehorses.
Students ride out on a rota system making use of the gallops, which includes a strenuous uphill section, and the schooling track, where they experience the thrill of riding a racehorse over fences at speed.
While working in the purpose-built breeding unit students handle and manage the Thoroughbred and sport horse brood mares and their young stock.They participate in the foaling rota, which can be either a quiet night or a very full-on experience, and have the opportunity to prepare and take the weanlings to the sales.
The equitation unit has a range of horses to meet the students’ needs and the equitation club attend a number of working hunter competitions, cross country schooling and Balmoral. Some of the student year groups organise various in-house competitions and demonstrations.
