Kingston Maurward Equestrian Seeking Student Horses


Kingston Maurward College is a BHS Centre offering full-time equine courses at Level 2 and Level 3 starting each September and apprenticeships which start throughout the year. All students do work experience with professional employers and many ex-students return to pass on their experiences to the next generation of students.

First class facilities include international sized indoor arena with top-of-the-range gel track surface, floodlit outdoor arena, solarium, cross country course, and well-schooled horses and ponies.  

The Kingston Maurward College Equestrian team are looking for high quality ‘all-rounder’ horses between 15h and 17h who are skilled on the flat and over fences. A variety of livery and long-term loan options are available to owners, with horses working a maximum of 1 -2 hours per day from Monday to Friday; all horses are ridden by students under the expert guidance of College coaches. Horses benefit from daily turnout (weather permitting) and regular check-ups with a local saddler and bodywork practitioner.

Kingston Maurward is a show venue with competition-sized indoor and outdoor arenas – the centre welcomes international riders for teaching clinics and run weekly shows throughout the year; horse owners would benefit from a 20% discount of all show entries. The stunning 750 acre estate has easy access to beautiful walks; whether on campus, or the nearby Thorncombe Woods, Puddletown Forest and beyond.
