About the Association

U.S.R. Hippeia is the association for Utrecht students who love riding and socializing. With over 85 years of history, enthusiastic members and high quality lessons by certified instructors, Hippeia has everything it takes to make riding fun and affordable for students!

On Wednesday we have our regular lessons. At the ‘t Hoogt stables in Utrecht there are advanced, intermediate and beginner lessons, either in the indoor or outdoor arena depending on the weather. This allows both riders with years of experience as well as novice riders to join us for a lesson on their own level.

In addition to the weekly evening lessons, Hippeia organizes many activities, both with and without horses. For example; we go on trail rides, have jumping clinics, participate in national competitions, go to wine tastings and pubquizes, and of course we organize get-togethers… and then there is the annual camp! All of this is completely optional. This also applies to the many committees within Hippeia. Do you like to organize events or do you want to make Hippeia more well-known for example? Then you can choose to participate in one of the committees.

The association is characterized by its small scale, diverse and accessible nature. With around 60 members there is a nice and personal ambiance. Everyone knows each other and everyone is welcome; the mixture of studies, ages, riding levels and backgrounds demonstrates this. The association offers something for everyone, meaning all can enjoy their time at U.S.R. Hippeia however they like.
