UWE Riding is a mixed social club catering for people of all abilities from complete beginners who have never sat on a horse before to those who compete on a regular basis. Weekly lessons are held at Summerhouse Equestrian Centre which provide us with lesson which that are great value for money thanks to the exclusive riding club lesson rate!
BUCS provides the opportunity for those who are more advanced to compete for the Uni. If you are able to ride a novice dressage test, jump upto 2'9 and get on and ride a variety of horses then why not give the trials a go? UWE Riding has 2 BUCS teams who train st Summerhouse Equestrian every Thursday evening - commitment to the training sessions is required! If you have got the effort and dedication required then why not sign up! Information about sign-ups and trials will be released on our Facebook page nearer the time
For those who are unsure about the seriousness of BUCS, the commitment involved or never had the opportunity to compete why not try for our Friendly team? This is exactly the same set up as BUCS but not (quite) as competitive and has a more 'fun' feel! It will provide you with the opportunity to experience a competition and meet other people who are just as horse mad as you!
We also aim to hold a range of socials which include club nights out, meals, day time activities, yearly trip to Badminton and much more! We like to do our bit for charity too, this year raising almost £1000 and winning the award for sports fundraissing club of the year!
