From Year 4 every child has the opportunity to ride whatever their ability. Children can bring their own pony to school and have the responsibility of caring for it. There are school ponies that are also cared for by the children and our expert onsite staff.
The Elms enters the National Schools Equestrian Association competitions within Herefordshire and we regularly qualify for the regional championships. These competitions happen throughout the year with The Elms attending around 8 per term.
