Equestrian education has become an integral part of our competitive and recreational sports ​​​​​​​programme with an increasing number of students taking the reins.

At Iona, riders of all levels are participating across disciplines including dressage, showjumping, show hunter and eventing.

​​​​​​​Girls from Years 7-13 are invited to join the Iona Equestrian Programme and the Iona equestrian team competes in interschool events, with some riders also competing at a regional and national level. 

Iona Equestrian Programme at Montana Horse Arena 

We are delighted to offer a new IONA EQUESTRIAN PROGRAMME in partnership with the Frankum family whose daughters attended Iona College.

Students are offered a year-round comprehensive programme for riders across all levels,  access to their horses during the school term and professional mentoring and training to develop their riding and horsemanship skills.

​​​​​​​Agistment and coaching facilities are available within a short 10-minute journey from Iona College.

In addition to, and as important as rider development, ​​​​​​​is personal development

Being part of a like-minded team, which supports each member, no matter what level of ability and experience is a core part of the programme.

Girls will be encouraged to set attainable goals to extend their riding abilities. Individual success will be celebrated within the group. Principles of sportsmanship, courtesy, dedication, and personal responsibility will develop the girls’ character.
