There were a host of activities for the pupils to get involved with during the trip, including assisting with the day-to-day tasks at the site and riding the impressive horses around the facility.

They wwill be visiting the venue frequently over the summer term and further adds to the vast co-curricular options available to pupils across all age groups at the school.

Miss Earle, said: “It was a very successful first visit to the Bridlewood Riding Centre, and I would like to thank the staff at the site for making us feel so welcome.

“Each pupil involved really enjoyed themselves and got an enormous amount out of the experience, and their attitude throughout was exemplary.

“They got stuck into every task with their usual enthusiasm and fearless nature, having a great deal of fun in the process.”
