Hello! We are a really welcoming sports club and accommodate all levels of rider. We run weekly riding lessons at Naburn Grange catering for absolute beginners, to those who have ridden all their life, in grouped lessons to suit your ability.
Due to covid guidlined in term 1 we can only provide lessons for those who can trot independently from a leader on the ground and who have their own equipment. We are really sorry as this is out of our control. We hope to welcome beginners after Christmas, but this is dependant on goverment guidance at the time.
We also have 4 BUCS competition teams who train at Harrogate Riding Centre. Competitions start at Novice level dressage and 70cm showjumping with the opportunity to qualify for regionals and nationals where competitions can reach advanced medium dressage and 1.20 showjumping. The teams also take part in Roses which is a really exciting opportunity to show the rest of uni what we do. (Team applications have been completed for this academic year)
We run weekly socials varying from the classic Wednesday Salvos, trips to the trampoline park and 'bish bash pot', and some really exciting horse riding clinics and demonstrations. Along side this we also run a Tour so keep your eyes peeled for Tour information and excitingly year we are also looking at introducing some horse ball lessons! - This is all looking slightly different at the moment due to covid.
We can't wait to meet you so if you have any questions drop us an email!
Naburn lessons are on a Wednesday afternoon (timing dependant on sign up numbers), from the Roger Kirk Centre. All information about your lesson will be communicated via email.
Harrogate lessons vary but we try our best to be accommodating and have a lesson on a Wednesday afternoon and tuesday afternoon/evening. Due to lesson length and travel time 3 to 4 hours is sometimes required to be put aside for a training session. Only one lesson is required a week.
Our club can suit anyone! Have you always wanted to try riding? University is a great place to give it a go and start with lots of people of a similar age.
Have you had lessons at home for years? You can keep your skills topped up while setting some time aside in your week for a destress in the countryside.
Do you love riding but with no interest in competing? Join the intermediate and advanced Naburn lessons to further your knowledge and expertise without any stress of performing.
Do you want to represent your university in competitions? Try out for our 4 BUCS teams and experience competing with a group who all have a shared passion for the sport.
The best way to get involved is to come and see us at freshers fair and signing up to our mailing list, or email us requesting to be added.
