North Carolina, USA: Grande Equestrian Academy - Coming Soon
Students at the Grande Equestrian Academy may choose from a selection of equestrian pursuits, such as Classical Horsemanship and Therapeutic Horse Riding training. It is developed by a team of military personnel and medal winners of international competitions in cooperation with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship.
The Classical Horsemanship curriculum is designed to emulate the standard and expertise of its famed school by offering theoretical riding sessions, advanced dressage seminars for high-level riders, carriage driving seminars, advanced grooming classes, animal health and breeding, and equine training and management.
The Therapeutic Horse Riding training is focused on equine-assisted activities and therapies including hippotherapy, equine-facilitated mental health, driving, interactive vaulting, competition, ground work, and stable management. Participants will be able to acquire certifications and licenses during the training that will enable them to partake in international contests or manage a therapeutic riding center.
Facilities provide room for up to 400 horses, a riding pavillon, outdoor jumping courts with bleachers, classrooms, and a state-of-the art gym and wellness center. Locations are under consideration in North Carolina, USA.
The Grande Equestrian Academy is one of eight sports academies of the Grande Sports Centre. The Grande Sports Centre—with its GRANDE SPORTS ACADEMIES & LEARNING-VOCATIONAL INSTITUTES—is the first alternative school worldwide specializing in providing a holistic approach to each student’s academic, athletic, personal, and career development. The program is designed to lay the foundation for their future careers in the corporate or athletic world.
The Grande Sports Centre Concept:
Grande Sports Centre complexes are currently planned in the USA, Italy, Spain, China, and the Middle East. Each is designed to cater to up to 2,000 boarding and day students. Our sports facilities have been specifically designed to meet the needs of student-athletes and faculty.
The program addresses high school and pre-collegiate students who are looking to gain a cutting edge advantage through sports and academic education prior to college. In addition, summer and holiday programs are offered to young adults, parents, and their families.
The Grande Sports Centre represents the philosophy that in today’s corporate world it is a prerequisite for future corporate leaders to excel not only in professional and international qualifications, but also to excel socially, physically, and mentally. Mastering a prestigious sport equips students with the personality, endurance, and sociability to open career gates and meet any future professional or business challenge.
The Grande Organization is gathering some of the world’s leading luxury, entertainment, and sports celebrity brands for the eight academy program types it offers—most of them in Olympic disciplines such as tennis, golf, basketball, soccer, swimming, sailing, hockey, and equestrian.
Furthermore, the Grande Sports Centres take celebrity branding to an entirely new level. The athletic and educational campus development program work from commitments from sports celebrities that have a strong involvement in the vision of honing future talent. Each of the eight Grande Sports Academies are branded by a true champion of its respective sport who has risen to the top of the game. Involved celebrities take great pride not only in the design of the state-of-the-art sports facilities, but also contribute to the curriculum and even partially run the operations.
