About us

Riding club welcomes riders of all abilities, whether you're a complete beginner, or are an experienced rider looking for a challenge. We hold weekly club lessons at Snowball Farm, aiming to improve your skills as a rider. We also offer opportunities for more experienced riders looking to compete in dressage and showjumping. We have three of the most impressive BUCS teams alongside a reserve team, allowing for 18 team spots. Coached by highly qualified instructors, team training is also held weekly.

We host regular socials suitable for all members, such as meals out and movie nights. Being an inclusive club means that we include both drinking and non-drinking socials. We end the year with a three-day camp at the yard and a tour to France, which is always something to look forward to! Our club aims to ensure all members have a memorable experience and enjoy their time at university!

Membership

We have three types of memberships available to purchase: Club, Team and Social. Club membership allows you access to buy subsidised lessons, attend all socials throughout the year, the opportunity to go on tour with us and helps towards the running of the club.

Team membership also allows for this, however, is only available to those that make it onto a team as this membership gives you access to team training. Both of these memberships permits us to keep four competition teams and allows us to get involved in and host several friendly competitions.

Lastly, our social membership will enable you to attend all socials if you don't wish to ride with us. We're a very active club that hosts many socials, and so this gives you access to these.

Being a riding club member offers you the opportunity of a lifetime where you can make the best of memories.
