KICS Riding School

Our aim is to introduce, nurture and create lasting bonds between riders and equines through quality instruction.

The KICS Stables & Riding School is situated in Soba village, a 15-minute drive from the main school. The riding school has a large sand arena, two lunge rings, grass arenas, a cross-country field and loose paddocks along with beautiful gardens bordering the Nile. KICS Riding School is an approved Overseas Centre of the UK Pony Club where student members can work towards internationally recognized tests and achievement badges.

KICS Stables & Riding School has a range of quiet and well-educated ponies and horses ranging from 12.2hh - 15.2hh. The riding school offers lessons tailored to meet specific needs including lunging, grid work, show-jumping techniques, dressage movements, gymkhana games, stable management and horse care. Encouraging all ability-levels to get involved, Sundays are dedicated to 30 minute lessons for young beginners where students are supported by competent grooms until their confidence and ability is built up. Additionally, Pony Walks can be booked for KICS Reception and Little KICS students to have a taste & feel of the equine world!

Regardless of riders' levels, learning to ride and care for large animals empowers students of all ages, boosting their confidence while giving them a sense of responsibility, kindness and compassion. 

For spectators and parents, KICS Stables sports an air-conditioned lecture room with tables and chairs, cool drinks cabinet, tea and coffee making facilities and a shaded terrace overlooking the main teaching paddock.

Required Dress Code: Jodhpurs or long trousers, standard riding boots/jodhpur boots or similar. The riding school provides helmets of a suitable standard.
