Equestrian Programmes

Ermitage International School offers two equestrian programmes for riders aged 11 to 18. Riding lessons are therefore integrated into the school timetable and students are fully supported by the equestrian programme leader as well as the boarding staff and teachers.


Ideal for riders who are passionate about riding but who have no specific goal or interest in competing.

Each week:

  • 2 group classes, 3 students maximum
  • 1 forest walk
  • 1 physical training session
  • 5 competitions per year

Riders will also have the opportunity, on option, to take part in competitions.
