King’s competes in prestigious inter-school equestrian competitions throughout the country. Disciplines include Dressage, Show Jumping, Arena Eventing ('Jumping with Style'), One Day Events, Hunter Trials and Tetrathlons.
Pupils take part in NSEA competitions whose aim is to promote and encourage the participation and recognition of equestrian sport within schools in Great Britain.
The NSEA is the recognised body for equestrianism in schools throughout the UK, providing intra and inter-schools competitions for team and individual riders.
They take place at local, county, regional and national levels, culminating in our annual National Schools Championships in October.
The majority of pupils who compete for King’s are very experienced and conduct their training independently. We organise training a few weeks before the events we take part in, but many members also have their own training programme as well.
Several students regularly compete outside of school and have received national honors in their events.
