EQUESTRIAN ACTIVITIES AT
ALL SAINTS’ COLLEGE

All Saints’ is currently offering through the Equestrian Club, a diverse and exciting range of opportunities for students wishing to participate in equestrian activities.

Training and Clinics

The All Saints’ Equestrian Club offers regular group training opportunities both on and off campus with Equestrian Australia qualified instructors, catering for both beginner and advanced riders. The All Saints Equestrian Club regularly participates in the annual North West Equestrian Expo. Regular clinics are held at the College to give students the opportunity to hone their skills in showjumping, dressage and cross country in preparation for the Expo.

Junior equestrian activities

Junior equestrian activities are keenly encouraged at All Saints. Each week a group of young ‘beginner’ riders from the All Saints’ Junior School participates in a group lesson at the College’s dedicated equestrian sand arena located within the campus agricultural facilities.   In addition, group lessons and clinics that are held throughout the year where qualified instructors are available to conduct private, individual lessons on campus.

Competitions

  • The All Saints’ Equestrian Team participates in many competitions covering a broad range of disciplines.  
  • The school is also represented at the Equestrian Australia NSW State Interschool Championships held each year in March at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre, along with many other local and regional interschool competitions.

Annual Showjumping Day

The major fundraiser for the All Saints’ College Equestrian Club is the annual All Saints’ College Showjumping Day which is held in the beautiful school grounds every year in May. With two showjumping rings operating and over 70 competitors, each year this fantastic day attracts riders from not only the local area but also riders from other centres, bringing a high level of competition to the event.

Facilities

Bringing your horse to All Saints is part of what makes the equestrian programme unique in this area.  Paddocks with shelters are available for equine agistment by boarding students for a small fee.  Students also have access to the sand arena and to the unique train carriage for storage of tack and feed.

ASC Annual Equestrian Awards Dinner

In Term Four, the annual Equestrian Awards presentation dinner is held. This is a wonderful night where the achievement and efforts of our riders from throughout the year are acknowledged.

Riders compete at Scots Showjumping Day

The Scots Showjumping day was last Sunday.

While ASC had only a small group representing the Equestrian team, Millie Cupples, Megan Redpath and Fiona Campbell flew the flag strongly.

Both Millie and Fiona rode well however unfortunately each had 1 or 2 rails down in both their rounds and therefore were just out of the placings.

Megan rode 5 rounds for a total of 4 ribbons including Reserve Champion 80cm Jumper and only just missed out on being champion as she forgot the last jump in her first jump off.

Amber Collins and Kate Hodges also spent Saturday stewarding one of the equestrian rings at Blayney Show with many compliments to their enthusiasm and commitment from the judge. Well done.

Millicent Impresses at Oxley

Millicent Cupples competed at the Oxley College Combined Training Equestrian event on Sunday 30 April.

Millicent rode in two dressage tests and two showjumping rounds.

After the first dressage test she was placed first and showed good improvement in the jumping.

Unfortunately after jumping clear, Millie knocked down two rails in the final round.

This put her in fourth place at the end of the day - still a great effort. 

Congratulations Millie!
