Gatehouses' Equestrian offering is an integral
part of the curriculum and is available to all residents.
Residents come to us with varying levels of skill and interest
and the response is a comprehensive equestrian offering
ranging from basic Western style riding to involvement in
thoroughbred racing. We are one of the few facilities that
has sported a polo team at one time. First-time riders are
taught the basics of grooming and care, while those more
experienced will be handed the opportunity to be critically
involved in the development of a thoroughbred racehorse.
The involvement of horses
at Gatehouse is just another way that excellence is brought
to the residents and they have a chance to be engaged
in the pursuit of an activity that can bring a sense of
joy to their lives.
