Riding Club offers lessons at 2 different yards close to town. Our BUCS team trains weekly at Drumcarrow Equestrian on a Wednesday afternoon, and we currently offer intermediate/advanced lessons there on a Monday and a Friday. Our beginners and intermediate riders tend to ride at Edenside Stables, although more advanced riders are welcome to ride there too if they would like. Lessons at Edenside run on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Both of these yards can be accessed easily by taxi, and Edenside can also be reached on the 99 Bus heading to Dundee. Riders are welcome to sign up for as many lessons as they would like and are paid for on a lesson-by-lesson basis, whilst team members are required to ride at least once a week. Lessons are usually in groups of up to 3 at Drumcarrow and up to 6 at Edenside, but private lessons can also be organised. Although we do not typically offer hacking, in the warmer months we try to organise groups hacks at a centre slightly further out of St Andrews.
Riding Club holds events for members throughout the year with something to suit everyone. Popular events include Opening and Closing Dinner, as well as our annual Christmas Potluck Dinner. Other social events that have taken place in the past include movie nights, cookie decorating, bonfires with Dundee Riding Club and attending Sinners at the Union. We also do an annual spring break trip for club members, with previous destinations including Italy, Spain, Portugal and Cyprus. We aim to run social events that cater for everyone, and there is never any pressure to join in with an event if it not to your taste! We are always keen to have the input of our club members on things to do for our socials, so if you have any ideas do not hesitate to get in touch.
