Welcome to the homepage for the University of Chester Equestrian Club!

Horses…give it a try, you’ll like it!

We provide weekly lessons at a Pennant Park Riding Centre. We cater for everyone – for people who have never ridden before to seasoned pro’s who go out and compete! We have a Championship league and 2 Trophy league BUCS teams as well as organising friendlies with other universities. Along with weekly socials and voluntary work for a local horse charity we are a great way to make friends and learn a new sport you may not otherwise have the chance to!

In 2015/16 all of our teams finished 2nd in their league finishing on the same points or within a point of first place! Our Championship team captain Ben qualified for Nationals as an individual (which puts him in the top 16 in the country!) which will take place at the end of the year!!

We’ve have loads of new members learn how to ride and form great friendships with other riders and we hope these friendships continue into 2016/17 academic year!

In the 2016/17 academic year we are prioritising development within the club. We want to raise the standard of riding and try and raise the bar with what is expected of us by our competitors! We have senior BHS coach Carl Crofts to train our teams! But don’t worry if you just want to ride for fun! Our riding school has excellent facilities for everyone and absolutely wonderful horses!

We are also working along side Horse Sense – a charity for rescued horses in the Wirral who have a wide range of horses, ponies and foals who all need our help to eventually make it possible for them to be re-homed!

We are one of the few clubs at the University who take on members of all abilities and of both genders! We offer lessons at £17 which is half the price of what riding schools usually charge so its a great opportunity to learn at an affordable price as well as make some lifelong friends!
