RGU: Equestrian was formed to provide riding for students who have never ridden before, up to students who have competed nationally. The club provides great opportunities for students as well as a supportive friendship group. Not only do we have a successful University team, but we also provide riding lessons with our local training facility at Aberdeen Ridinc Club (ARC). ARC has some wonderful facilities to offer, as well as some brilliant instructors. There are weekly lessons, our A and B teams train weekly on the horses provided by ARC, this is to prepare them fully for the competitions. In these competitions, riders have to complete a dressge test and show jumping round on an unknown horse where they are only given limited time to warm up. Riders are scored on their ability to get the best out of each horse, their own riding, and the accuracy of the test or round.
Some of RGU's team riders have represented Team GB at International University Team level, with winnings and high placings numeous years. Some say the University training has allowed them to excel individually and improve their own riding. Could this be you? Do you want to try to be on our winning team? Sign up now!
