Equestrian Team

The Frensham Equestrian Team has achieved a number of awards and honours in past years. Our young riders are regarded as some of the finest in Australia and often represent the School in local, state, and national events.

Frensham, for the seventh year in succession, was the Champion Secondary School in the NSW Interschool Equestrian Championships 2018. Our Junior School, Gib Gate, was awarded the Champion Primary School in the same competition.
