Knights Accreditation:

 

Welcome to RURC!

We are a fun and friendly club open to riders of all abilities from complete beginners up to accomplished riders competing at CIC** events. We have two teams competing in BUCS leagues and a friendly team as well as lots of club events involving ponies, no ponies, alcohol, no alcohol and always a lovely group of people.

Lessons: 

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. 

Kit:

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. 

Events, Socials and Holidays:

The club holds an array of horsey events throughout the year for all abilities. This year we're looking to spice it up a bit by running an interclub competition and hopefully many more exciting things, all will be a good laugh and an enjoyable escape from lectures and exams! Of course, being a university club we hold many non-horsey socials involving alcohol, food or both. Day trips to Olympia and Ascot, as well as nights in watching films, nights out and formals, the socials are a great way to meet other members of the club. Last year we went trampolining, had pizza nights and regular Union outings. 
As for holidays there is always a trip somewhere in the UK trekking on the moors at the start of the Easter holidays, a few years ago we went to Cwmfforest Riding Centre (www.transwales.com) and spent 2 and a half days riding in the Brecon Beacons in Wales. We're also looking at having a riding holiday abroad during the summer break, potentially a trip to Vienna to ride along the mountains or a trip to the Spanish riding school! 

Teams:

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! 

 

If there's anything else you would like to know please send us an email, visit our facebook page or visit us as Freshers Fayre in September! We look forward to seeing you soon!
