Equestrian Centre

The Peterhouse Group of Schools is proud to have its own Equestrian Centre based on campus. The centre allows pupils with a passion for horse-riding to fully experience equestrian life, gain valuable knowledge in the field and compete on many levels.

A great deal of fun is had by pupils who dedicate their time to the Equestrian Centre. A number of events both on campus and off-campus are organised each year.

The Peterhouse Annual Show is judged by Harare professionals and includes events such as dressage, jumping from beginners to advanced level, cross country and a Chase Me Charlie event – a fun test of endurance. There is also a gymkhana event for pupils just starting out and not quite proficient enough to make the jumps.
A number of trophies are awarded each year including Equitation Classes; Most Improved In Each Group; Most Competition Points; Jumping; Dressage; Music Dressage; Cross Country; Chase Me Charlie; Zimbabwe Selection; Clowns of the Class; Most Determined; Most Difficult Horse; Most Helpful Rider and Most Obstacles Overcome.
