Welcome to the University of Liverpool Riding club

There will never be a better time to get involved in horse riding than when you’re at university. Whether you’ve never ridden before, or you’re striving for national competition success, the riding has something to offer you. Come at visit us at the Welcome Fair!


If you have never sat on a horse before, or if you are a competition rider, we thoroughly encourage you to give riding lessons a go! Lessons are split into four groups: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. These groups are based on riding ability and are held weekly at Larton Riding School. (external link)

The club has three competitive teams that perform in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) leagues.

Social Events

The riding club offers a diverse range of social activities in which all members are encouraged to get involved. We offer bar crawls, club meals, Athletic Union (AU) nights, pizza nights and AU ball; we aim to offer something for everyone to enjoy at LURC.
