RIDING TEAM
We are extremely proud of the Farlington Team who under the guidance of Sara Whittaker, Director of Sport  have gone from strength to strength. Competing at NSEA level, the Riding Team is made up of a friendly, yet competitive group of riders across all year groups.  Most of the riders are from the Senior School but we welcome younger riders who are keen to compete.

FARLINGTON RIDING SHOW – October 2019
We hold x2 Riding Shows each year.  The next one will be in October 2019.  Details will be posted soon.

TEAM TRAINING
We train as a team, outside of the school grounds on a regular basis.
Our trainer is Simon Luck.  Simon is a highly qualified Chief Pony Club, BHS Instructor and show producer.

LESSONS
Many of our riders attend lessons at local pony clubs and riding schools.  The lessons are out of school hours.
By attending these lessons our young riders get to know each other quickly and firm friendships are formed.
It is also a great way for our parents to get to know each other too.  
More experienced members of the Riding Team are
able to visit our younger riders , giving them support and encouragement as well.
