The Stoneleigh-Burnham Equestrian Center continues to grow and improve our facilities. Already certified by the British Horse Society (BHS), the Equestrian Center was recently certified to be an official BHS Testing Center, which will give school and area riders greatly improved access to achieve their BHS certification.
The School has launched a fundraising initiative to support these important projects. With gifts from alumnae, parents, and friends, the proposed expansion will help the School continue to attract new riders, grow competition space, and build greater national awareness of the SBS Equestrian Program. Please give today.
