By joining the club you can expect a weekly fix of all things horsey, whether you choose to take part in our riding lessons or to trial for our competition teams. We can help you develop new skills all while meeting a group of friendly and like-minded people.

We can offer you great lessons at amazing prices in flat work and jumping, priced at £23 per lesson. Throughout the year there will also be chances to take part in hacks, gymkhanas and friendlies (for lesson riders looking to compete too).

We have teams that compete in BUCS League’s, which involve team members competing in two disciplines, dressage and jumping. Team trials are held once at the start of the academic year where 16 riders will be selected from Portsmouth/Sparsholt. If selected for teams, BUCS membership is charged at £100 for the year.

As well as all these riding opportunities, our social sec Tasha arranges regular socials, ranging from Purple Wednesday’s to sober socials. There is always something for everyone!

Our riding sessions take place at Sparsholt Equestrian Centre (https://www.sparsholt.ac.uk/college/equine-centre/) and transport is organised for you for a very small financial contribution.

The current membership fee is £80, which includes organised transport and subsidised lesson prices, along with invites to all social events and free stable management lessons. Membership can be purchased at any time throughout the year from the link below.

We look forward to meeting you!
