Equestrian

The Equestrian League is an initiative created to provide an affordable equestrian league competition for all and at the same time to grow the sport by catering for ordinary riders who wish to compete and have fun. Every entry accumulates scores for the individual competitor as well as for our school.

We have a number of equestrians who compete in a variety of classes and disciplines. We also boast with a number of provincial riders. Students who ride for Ashton International College are pleasure riders, interested beginners, and serious competitors – all with their own horses, school ponies and instructors at various stable yards.

We have various riders performing and competing at top level – qualifying for the Ekurhuleni Regional Team representing the regional finals. We have also had the privilege of riders representing us at the Nationals. Ashton received second place in Category F for High schools.

SANESA is the main body and organization for all participating provinces and schools. SANESA is a vibrant and dynamic organization, acknowledged by the South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF) and SASCOC, and has dedicated itself to promoting all forms of Equestrian sport within South Africa’s schools’ community. Currently they have 15 diverse equestrian competition disciplines. Each province in South Africa has SANESA representation and some provinces are divided into regions. Every province / region holds at least 4 multi – discipline competitions in the first seven months of the year and then the top eight riders with the most accumulated points in each go forward to represent their province at the annual SANESA National Championships during September / October.

As organizer of this prestigious sport I ride and compete on a regular basis and understand the hard work, discipline, and hours required in the sun and over weekends. I thoroughly enjoy watching our riders at various shows throughout the year.

“Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls. They give us hope!”
