Equestrian Club

The Equestrian Club is where you can find your fix of all things horsey.

The Equestrian Club is where you can find your fix of all things horsey, whether you choose to focus on growing and developing your skills during our riding lessons or decide to give competing a go. We can help you develop new skills all while meeting friendly and like-minded people.

We can offer you tailored lessons at amazing prices in both flat and jump as well as hacking and gymkhanas.

Our competition teams trial once a year where we look for riders who can compete for the University within BUCS leagues. 

As well as all these riding opportunities our committee arrange regular socials ranging from themed Purple Wednesday nights out to meals out, bowling, and trips to events such as Goodwood Races and Windsor Horse Show. There is always something for everyone.

Please note that the stables we use have a strict 13st weight limit for all club members, for animal welfare purposes. You can join our club for the second half of the 2023/24 academic year for £47.50. Our competitive teams are full for this academic year.

Training sessions

  • Club training bi-weekly at Fort Widley

Competitions will take place throughout the course of the year at various locations. We work around students' timetables to ensure you can attend competitions.

Memberships to join our clubs for the 23/24 year are now open. Please note: for some clubs you need to attend trials before purchasing a membership. Contact the club for more information.
