Welcome to our brand new club!
We are Derby Horse Riding Club, we ride weekly at Barleyfields Equestrian Centre and cater from beginners to the more advanced riders. We have hourly sessions 6:30pm until 7:30pm and ride in groups of no more than 6 people. We offer a fun friendly atmosphere where we learn new skills every week.
If you have never ridden a horse before and want to give it a go then we cater for this with beginner sessions which include the basics such as learning how to get on and off the horse, how to make the horse go forward and stop and also how to turn. As your experience builds then the more technical the lessons get but will always go at a pace best for you.
For the more advanced riders we have a seperate group where we build on higher level skills such as cantering and jumping. This again runs at your pace and you are never forced to do anything that you don't feel comfortable with.
Lessons are as follows;
Beginners: every Tuesday 6:30pm until 7:30pm
Advanced: every Tuesday 6:30pm until 7:30pm
Prices are £15 for the hour with hat hire included.
Due to horse riding not being on the university campus, transport will be needed, we currently have only one driver so taxi's are used to get our riders to and from the centre. This means that the taxi fair will vary each week depending on the number of riders going. We have agreed prices with the university's taxi firm, Pride Cars and these will be organised by the commitee once we know who is going.
We hope to see you soon and welcome you to our very new but very fun club!
