NEGS Equestrian offers a competition exchange to New Zealand’s Nga Tawa Dioscean School in Wellington. NEGS students travel to the school to compete against the peers, and Nga Tawa students visit and stay at NEGS for a competition in our Equestrian Centre. The exchange is a fabulous opportunity for our equestrian students to experience international competition – working with borrowed horses, exchanging skills and knowledge and making new equestrian friends across the Tasman Sea.
