Our lessons take place every week on a Wednesday afternoon at Wellington Riding School and are split into ability groups. The lessons are discounted 50% for student and non-student members at only £25 for an hours riding and you can ride as little or as often as you like. Bookings are made in advance by signing up via our facebook group at (http://www.facebook.com/groups/uni.reading.riding.club/) between Wednesday and Friday of the week before. Each lesson meets an hour before their lesson at Sportspark and either get a taxi or drive to Wellington.
Reading University Riding Club have our own club stash which we like to wear and show off around campus and when we're off riding horses at Wellington. Kit will be ordered in the middle of first term, this will be advertised on our facebook group in first term.
We have 3 teams who each compete four times a year and have 4 members per team. BUCS A&B and a friendlies team. The competitons consist of a dressage round and a showjumping round on horses provided by the hosting university, last year an individual qualified for regionals and a few years ago our BUCS A team qualified for regionals and nationals! We also partake in Varsity with Oxford Brookes, we're hoping to continue our success this year! Trials take place in the first few weeks of the Autumn term so make sure you bring your hat and riding boots!
