Kent School Equestrian Team

Grow your passion for riding in a co-educational setting that stresses good sportsmanship, excellent horsemanship, and a willingness to learn while on horseback above all else. You have the opportunity to develop your equestrian skills in a variety of disciplines with a focus on hunters, jumpers and equitation.

To be truly successful in any aspect of riding, riders must adjust their style to the needs of the horse. One can never expect the horse to adjust to the needs of the rider.

Sound Fundamentals

Kent’s training philosophy has its roots in classical horsemanship with the belief that the fundamentals unlock rider growth. There are no secrets, just hard work.

The Best of Kent & Home

If you come to us with an existing trainer, we will work in partnership to create a program that builds on your experience and will best develop your riding skills.

Opportunities for Growth & Variety

Develop and grow your passion in riding in a coeducational setting as you take advantage of two indoor and three outdoor rings, a grand prix field, a grass hunter field and a cross country course designed for every skill level.

You have the choice to bring your own horse or to work with one of our “equine professors.” Our school horses set the standard for quality. Many have competed at the top of their discipline and offer a schoolmaster experience for their riders. Others will teach you how to ride from the beginning.
