The University of Brighton Equestrian Club provides affordable riding training specialising in dressage and show jumping. We enter BUCS league competition for intermediate/advanced riders and recreational riding & competitions for novice/Intermediate riders. No horse is required to take part in the club's activities.The format of university competition means we compete on unknown horses for away fixtures and are given a short ammount of time to get used to the horse used for competition. Some members prefer just to train with us and not compete. 
Plumpton have excellent facilities, with two large indoor arenas and an even bigger outdoor one, we're spoilt for choice. 
If you fancy polo we'd highly recommend our sister club The Polo Team. We work closely together to hold lots of fun socials and activities together and help support each other through the year at events.





Locations: Plumpton (near Brighton)

Type: Competitions and training

Details: We enter two teams in BUCS leagues. We also offer recreational opportunities too.

For contact information for all our clubs see the table on our main Student Club page.





Costs: £15 for term one. Due to the situation with Covid-19 this membership is offered for BUCS clubs who will offer non competitive BUCS opportunities for term one. Sessions will be run by the club. Should BUCS competition return then a top up fee will be charged for term two to reflect the shift to BUCS competition. The cost of term two partcipation will depend on what is offered given the restrictions at the time. 

Term one pass members will have access to personal injury insurance.

Additonal costs for lessons will be set by the club. 

Buy your Sports Federation Membership here once you know you are taking part in club activities.

You can take part in as many clubs as you like and can fit in. You only need to buy one membership which should be for the club that  requires the highest category membership. So if you do both a Silver and Bronze Off-Site club then you just need a Silver card. You need to buy a membership after your first session. Contact Sport Brighton if you have any questions.
