Buxton Equine

Univeristy of Derby Equine Club

The Equine club is for any horse enthusiast! We welcome anyone from beginners wanting to learn, to those who have their own horses and know the ins and outs of the equine world. 

Lessons and Competitions

The club ride weekly at the local riding school in Buxton, where the staff on hand are friendly and very flexible with when students can ride. Not only do we have lessons within the school, but farm rides out across the beautiful Peak District. Lessons cost £10 a time, £5 of which is reimbursed bi-semesterly for every week members ride, making lessons £5 a week!

In addition to this, the club organises team competitions with other univerisities in the area, encouraging members to compete in Dressage and Show-jumping diciplines. This is with an aim to register a team to compete in BUCS next year.
