Equestrian Program

//Equestrian Program

The SMGS Equestrian Program offers instruction for all levels of rider from beginner to advanced.

Riders receive a solid general education upon which they may choose to build and excel in one or more of the many equestrian disciplines, or just continue to enjoy riding as a recreational activity.

Riders in our program participate in a flatwork lesson (the foundation of all riding disciplines) each week, and may elect to participate in additional weekly show-jumping lessons. Students have the opportunity to participate in multi-day camps on weekends and during school holidays, exploring other disciplines.

The program engages a number of instructors to ensure that tuition is matched to the level and interest of the riders participating. Our chief instructor, Sarah Dreverman, has compete in the show ring at the top level and is now engaged in high grade show-jumping.

Each May, the school holds an annual interschools equestrian competition which attracts over 200 riders from across the State and lasts for 5 days. At the event, riders compete in a number of disciplines including one day event, hacking, show-jumping, sporting and stockhorse classes.

The school makes use of the wide variety of equestrian facilities in the local area, with the program centred around the purpose-built Jindabyne Equestrian Resort and Jindabyne Pony Club, while our interschools competition is held at the Station Resort which affords accommodation and stabling as well as enough space for a competition of this size.

Most of our riders participate in additional equestrian activities outside school, including pony club, dressage competitions, showjumping events, one day events, team penning and stockhorse challenges. The region is host each year to a number of agricultural shows, to the Snowy Mountains Show-jumping Festival and to the Man From Snowy River Stockhorse Challenge, providing ample opportunities for our riders to participate in their favourite sport.
