Equestrian Club

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

The University of Portsmouth Equestrian Club is where you can find a weekly fix of all things horsey, whether you choose to focus on growing and developing your skills during our weekly 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 and trips to events such as Olympia and Windsor Horse Show. There is always something for everyone.
