Equestrian competes under the New Hampshire High School Equestrian Team organization (NHHSET) in District #1, competing with local high schools including ConVal Regional High School, Monadnock Regional High School and Hillsboro-Deering High School.
NHHSET competition is a spring sport. The team participates in three Southwest district shows; from there any riders who qualify individually will proceed to the NHHSET State meet at the end of the season in May. Students compete at district meets in walk-trot, walk-trot-canter, team classes and in-hand classes. Classes are offered in English, western, dressage, jumping, trail and timed-games on horseback.
The equestrian program at Dublin School can accommodate riders at all levels from novice to advanced. The program is run in concert with the Temple Hills Equestrian Center under the supervision of a certified riding instructor and trainer. Riders are paired with horses that are compatible with their riding ability.
We have lessons/riding three days per week coupled with two work days at the barn. Students groom and tack the horses they ride and clean up after themselves. They are expected to help out with daily chores such as feeding, watering, and sweeping when they finish riding.
