The Academy

A way of life

When you speak to the equerries to understand what the Academy of Equestrian Arts means to them, that is the most common, spontaneous answer. We work and live our passion together. It’s not a school where you come to learn while waiting for a job to turn up. There is no curriculum, no diploma. It is more like a commitment, comparable to that of a dancer joining a ballet company. Commitment shared by all.
