This is the place to find out all about the club and what we do. Whether you are a total beginner, ride for fun, compete at all levels or just want to make a fantastic network of friends then the University of Plymouth Riding and Polo Club has something to offer for you; girls and boys alike!
We are dedicated to providing all students with the opportunity to go horse riding, and whether you are a highly skilled rider, focused on improving your current skills, or simply wish to try out something new and exhilarating, then this is the place to come.
Even better, you don’t even have to worry about owning your own horse!
We have competitive teams who train weekly and compete nationally, and unlimited lessons squads for those who have no intention of riding competitively!
We have lots of socials, including themed and non themed nights. We are having a variety of socials this year so everyone across the whole club both riding and polo can get to know each other. We also have old favourites such as white T-shirt, pub golf, and others!
We also have non-drinking socials, such as trips to Exeter Races, Christmas gymcana, Beach rides and loads more!
We want to make sure we provide what YOU want - any and all ideas are welcome!
For those who would like to try out for teams, we have trials in the first few weeks of term. From this, we develop teams, who commit to weekly training at St Leonards. These teams then go onto compete in dressage and showjumping against other universities in the BUCs league. We also have a friendlies team which provides the opportunity in a friendly environment with your own team to have a go at competing!
For those who have never ridden, or just want to ride for fun, we have lessons squads. The squads are grouped on ability at our Lesson Taster day during the first few weeks of term. So if you didnt get on a team or even dont fancy the idea of competing just yet this could also be the option for you.
PLEASE NOTE - unfortunately, if you sign up to the club after we have held trials, you will not be able to ride for a team, although we will place you in an appropriate level squad!.
