Royal Veterinary College Equestrian Team
We are involved in British Universities and Colleges Sport – A team competes in the championship league, B and C teams compete in the trophy league. Each team can qualify for Regional Rounds from their mini-league with the winner then going on to compete at the National Championships! Our competitions are unique in that we all compete on borrowed horses, removing any barrier to riders who don’t have their own horse to ride. We complete dressage and showjumping rounds and are marked against riders in the other university teams that ride the same horse. As we only have 7 minutes to warm up for dressage and 5 minutes for showjumping it is definitely a test of how well you can adapt and get a feel for the horse in a short amount of time!
