Horses for Courses

Riding Club 1RHUL Riding Club is one of the fastest growing clubs at university. We run weekly riding lessons for all abilities, from complete beginners to experienced riders. For those wishing to have the chance to compete, we have 3 competitive teams which compete in BUCS leagues 4 times a year. In the past, we’ve had some real successes in the BUCS league, and every outing is fun and relaxed. We train locally and organise transport to and from university for the riding lessons so transport is not an issue!

But we’re not all work and no play! We have a relaxed social side and this year there have been more socials than ever before, including our own themes for CIYK. The aim is to keep expanding the side of the club which allows members to see each other outside of lessons. The finale to our year is the annual Riding Camp, where members get a chance to have an intensive riding course over 3 days.

Next year, the club is aiming to do more volunteering work and to continue to offer a range of social activities that suit all members of the club. The committee is friendly, welcoming, and always willing to help. Overall the club hope to keep growing while maintaining a friendly, fun and relaxed attitude.
