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, two years ago our BUCS A girls qualified for regionals and nationals as a team! We also partake in Varsity with Oxford Brookes, last year we won by over 100 points at Brookes and we're hoping to continue this success when we host it at Wellington this year! Trials take place in the first few weeks of the Autumn term so make sure you bring your hat and riding boots!
