Welcome to the University Of Worcester’s Equestrian Club. We are a student run equestrian club open to all students interested in equestrianism regardless of previous experience. Our aim is to help you develop as an individual, and help you develop your understanding of both riding and stable management, as well as help you gain a social group outside of lectures that you feel comfortable in confiding in.
Our training venue is Worcester Riding School, who offer discounted prices to our members to be able to take lessons and train on a regular basis. We welcome members with none, little or plenty of experience!
As a member of the Equestrian Club you will be able to take part in lessons which can be in a small group or private. Lessons are discounted to paying members of £22 per lesson and you can train as much as you like, whenever you like. On the weekends we can go on hacks to the pub with the horses & lessons will be themed so you can choose which discipline to train in.
All of our members will be part of a team where they can train together & take part in, in - house competitions and friendly matches if they wish.
We have two league competing teams who compete against 4 other universities in dressage & show jumping. The dressage tends to be around prelim level & the show jumping is around 80-90cm. Our two league competing teams train weekly at WRS with top instructors who have competed internationally in different disciplines.
Wednesday's are social days / nights. Our league matches are always held on a Wednesday & every Wednesday night is social which will be themed weekly with lots of games and socializing with your club which very quicly becomes a family.
This year we aim to:
- Improve team training and make it more viable for every rider
- Increase awareness of the club
- Hold more opportunities for those not on BUCS teams
- Arrange friendlies with other universities
- Hold in house competitions for all members
- Arrange socials that's consist of fun days out
