Horses graze on green fields alongside resident zebra and a variety of wild buck; whitewashed stables provide comfortable and picturesque homes for twelve horses and ponies as well as a number of pupil-owned horses and ponies; rolling Midlands hills on the broader Treverton estate beckon the more adventurous for wonderful, safe outrides.
