Scots All Saints Equestrian

The Scots All Saints College Equestrian Program is a co-curricular program designed to allow students who have their own horses to train and compete in their chosen disciplines. It is offered as a co-curricular activity throughout the year as part of the ‘Active Afternoons’ program on Campus West (Saints) and Campus East (Scots). Students can also be involved in the equestrian program and participate in other co-curricular activities.

Students who elect Equestrian as their sole sport throughout the year are expected to participate in at least 2 full day competitions/clinics/club days each term.

Boarders can bring their horse to school with them to live on campus

Agistment of horses on campus

A unique feature of Scots All Saints College and one of the benefits of the school offering a spacious campus with paddocks close by to the boarding houses, is the ability for boarding students to bring their horse to school with them.

Agistment is available each term on both Bathurst campuses.

Students have a choice of:

  1. Shared paddocks all with electric fencing
  2. Large private yards (20m by 25m) with rubber lined shelter constructed of metal railing.
  3. Combination of both of the above (Paddock in daytime, yard at night)

There are fully lockable tack and feed rooms along with a 90 metre by 50 metre sand arena, full showjumping course and a sand round yard.

Weekly lessons by qualified instructors are offered to students for both showjumping and flat work. The showjumping lessons are held at the Equestrian Centre on Campus East (Scots) and the flat work lessons are held at both campuses. Students have opportunities for cross country clinics at a local cross country course and polocrosse training sessions.

Interschool Competitions

All of our equestrian students are encouraged to participate in interschool competitions. During most years, the College hosts their own showjumping competition. The Scots All Saints equestrian team participates in The North West Equestrian Expo in Coonabarabran and The Interschools Horse Extravaganza in Tamworth.
