Royal Borough of Greenwich Equestrian Skills Centre

This is the place to be for horse studies. In fact, the Royal Borough of Greenwich Equestrian Centre has a wide range of custom-built facilities and is one of the only places in South-East London to offer equestrian degrees. No surprises then that this campus is part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy.

Facilities on the site include an equine spa, water treadmill, hydrotherapy pool, indoor arena, mechanical horse and outdoor manege, as well as stabling for 26 horses.
