Brackenhurst Equestrian Centre consists of extensive and unique facilities including international size indoor and outdoor riding arenas, a horse walker, round pen, crew yards and a 40 x 20 metre research arena which is surrounded by a seven foot fence to allow loose schooling. Observation holes in the fence allow staff and students to observe the horse(s) from outside the arena to reduce any influence on natural behaviour.
The impressive centre is used by various organisations including local pony clubs, dressage and showjumping clinics and a winter dressage series run by BEDE events. Students benefit from the equestrian centre by organising their own competitions, taking part in significant research and develop their own coaching abilities to other students.
The Equestrian Centre is British Horse Society (BHS) approved training and livery establishment and we also hold a full local authority riding school licence.
