About Us

The Riding Club is a London based membership club bringing together like-minded equine enthusiasts of all levels for fun social and riding events.

We offer a wide variety of riding for members including weekly lessons, weekends away, holidays and unique member only riding experiences from side saddle to advanced dressage training and Household Cavalry lessons. We also have a very active social calendar including themed monthly drinks with special guest speakers, dinners, parties, BBQs and trips to major equine events. Meeting people with similar interests and making new friends is one of the major benefits of becoming a Riding Club member!

Frequently Asked Questions
1.

How much is membership?

Annual Club Membership is £240 per year with a one-off joining fee of £50. Social Membership is £100 per year with a £15 one-off joining fee. Membership runs for 12 months from the date of purchase, and renews automatically unless cancelled.

2.

What do I get for my membership?

Full club membership gives you access to all our exclusive events, retail discounts and 10% off lessons at the venues we partner with. Social membership gives you access to all our non-ridden events. Booking is required for most of our events, and unless otherwise informed, you simply purchase a ticket through our site — see our events section for details of prices.

3.

Where can I ride?

We have access to several different venues across London and nationwide. A full list of Riding Club-approved venues is only available to members however the team are always happy to advise prospective members on venues local to them before joining the club.

4.

Can I ride as a non-member?

For insurance reasons, only members can attend our riding events. Non-members can attend up to two social events per year for which non-member tickets are available. Members can also generally bring guests to social events. If you're not sure that an annual membership is for you, buy a ‘Ticket to Ride’ which includes a two-hour hack and two-month membership, so you can see what it is like!

5.

Can I join the club even if I don’t ride?

Absolutely! If you are interested in horses, or riding, we would love to have you on board! We have a busy social calendar of events and the team will be very happy to kick-start your riding career…if you fancy it! Contact the team to work out what membership type would best suit your requirements.

6.

Do I need to own a horse?

No. Very few of our members own a horse and for all of our riding-events horses are supplied.

7.

Can I join as a beginner?

Yes absolutely!. We have quite a few members who’ve never ridden before and don’t know where to start – hence joining the club! However, most of our members do have some prior experience of riding, even if it was a long time ago, and most of the riding events we organise are not suitable for absolute beginners. On joining the club all members receive a complimentary rider consultation where we discuss your goals and put together a training plan for you to get you going. We will recommend stables based on your location, lifestyle and level of experience and you will receive 10% off all tuition at our partner stables.

8.

Can I ride every week?

Yes, pretty much. We have riding events taking place most weeks of the year. Our regular member-only lessons are generally for more experienced riders, but you can always use your membership discount to book rides at the stables we partner with at a time and frequency of your choosing.

9.

Do events sell out very quickly?

Some of our events are very popular and do get booked up in advance, so it's worth keeping an eye on the website and regular newsletter mailout and signing up as soon as possible. However some events can be booked nearer the time, and we often keep a waiting list in case of cancellations.

10.

Are there any age restrictions?

So long as you're over 18yrs and in reasonable good health, anyone can become a member. Even if you're not able to get in the saddle, you can still become a social member and keep up your equine interests from the safety of the ground!
