Equestrian pursuits are becoming very popular with the learners of Southern Cross Schools. Learners who wish to participate in equestrian activities join one of the two stables that operate in Hoedspruit. Learners who join one of these stables are given permission to practice their riding during the school’s extra-curricular programme.

Southern Cross Schools is registered with SANESA and a school team participates all around Limpopo Province in the various SANESA shows that are held. Riders can qualify for provincial colours in this way.
