The school has also enjoyed its most successful year in this area, with a record number of pupils, following the extensive refurbishment of facilities.
Bryanston School’s head of riding, Sophie Starr, said: “Our equestrian centre has continued to evolve and develop over the past two decades, with former pupils having gone on to achieve considerable success at major international events and securing fulfilling equine careers.
“Today’s pupils now benefit from truly first-class facilities and unprecedented access to expertise that will help to ensure they fulfil their full potential – including Bryanston’s dedicated performance sport programme and input from one of the world’s most respected experts in horse and rider performance analysis.”
The centre features a range of outdoor arenas for show jumping and dressage, as well as an indoor training school, cross country schooling fields and extensive hacking options around the school’s 400-acre estate.

A team of grooms and coaches are based at the centre where there is a full stable complex and bespoke care for pupils’ horses.
“From humble beginnings, the Bryanston Equestrian Centre has grown to become a widely respected resource and environment for developing the skills of young riders,” continues Starr.
“And I’m delighted we now have a growing range of facilities and support to not only help young riders to excel in the different equestrian disciplines, but also to provide all pupils at the school with the opportunity to experience the enjoyment of horse riding.”
In addition to the school’s equestrian coaches, pupils also benefit from advice from Russell Guire, an authority on biomechanics, who plays a key role in helping riders on both the World Class Programme and Team GB.
