First of all it is REALLY IMPORTANT to join the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1735760303338490/ 2016-2017 we also have an Instagram HullUniversityRiding All details of events & riding lessons are conveyed on facebook and you will be given the majority of information at freshers fair. Hull University Riding club one of the friendliest & fastest growing clubs in Hull Uni Athletic union with over 50 members. The club welcomes all abilities of rider from those who have no experience at all and want to try a new sport, to seasoned competition riders. We have weekly lessons every Wednesday afternoon catering for all levels at the Oxmardyke equestrian and the team trains at Bishop Burton College which boasts some of the best equestrian facilities in the country including six arenas, rider fitness suite and a mechanical dressage horse. At the end of each semester we also hold mini dressage & show jumping competitions for everyone to enter as well as trips out to play polo & watch the races. For those who wish to compete we have two teams competing in BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) which combines dressage and show jumping. Any advanced rider is welcome to try out for the team. We currently have two BUCS teams ran by our captains Emma and Zeinah who organise the competitions and training sessions at Bishop Burton. Socialising is a huge part of the club, and a great way to make new friends and help you settle into university. Everyone is really friendly and makes a real effort to welcome new members so you don’t have to worry about feeling left out. We hold traditional sports socials every Wednesday night run by our Social Sec’s Hannah and Amy including bar crawls, theme nights, joint socials with other teams and lots of games. We also attend the athletic union’s annual sports tour for sun, sea and sangria...guaranteed to be the best week of your life! We like to get really involved in the AU and attend balls & trophy presentations as well as fun charity events such as naked calendar, super teams and dodge ball. Quote from old girl Liz Denton-Davis: ‘Apprehensively I returned to riding after an eight year gap, straight away I was put at ease and reassured that I would have a great time. I didn't really expect to stick at it but the friends I made and the high quality of lessons I received made me return week after week. The club is so friendly that anyone will be welcomed; Bishop Burton is an amazing place to learn how to ride and blow off some university steam. If you’re interested in riding and making friends for life, HURC is for you. I’m so glad I did, it made my year.’
