BUEC offers horse discounted riding lessons and other equestrian activities to riders of all abilities.

Brunel University Equestrian Club (BUEC) was re-launched in September 2017 and is going from strength-to-strength. Our 2018/19 season went really well as we increased our membership and held lessons virtually every week during term time (often holding two or three lessons in one week!). We ended the 2019/20 season with over 35 members ranging from total beginners to advanced riders who rode for our very successful teams. We are back again for the 2020/21 season and looking to gain even more members and have more lessons! We ride at Snowball Farm Equestrian Centre in Burnham, a British Horse Society approved riding school with fantastic facilities including indoor and outdoor schools, a cross country course and excellent hacking as well as friendly, qualified instructors.

We are a friendly, supportive club and we are always open to new members of all abilities. Whether you’re an experienced eventer, happy hacker or a total beginner, we would love to have you on-board.

If you’d like to contact us with any questions you may have, please just get in contact via social media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram), our website or any of our committee members.


Why Join Brunel Equestrian?

When & Where do we Ride?

We aim to have each non-team group riding once a week, usually on Wednesday afternoons at 3pm (beginners / novices) and 4pm (intermediate / advanced). Lessons cost £30 for a one-hour group lesson of 4-6 riders. Nobody is obliged to ride every week, but the more you ride, the quicker you will improve! We meet outside the IAC one hour before the lesson and drive / Uber to Snowball farm Equestrian Centre.
