Hippeia is thé horseriding association for all students in Utrecht. Aside from our weekly lessons on Wednesday evening, we also organise several activities throughout the year; some with and some without horses. Hippeia is a small and a close association where making friends and having fun are most important. Ever since 1936 we ensure that riders from every level are able to ride horses with us for a reasonable fee!
Hippeia is a very sociable association. Aside from riding horses, we also have dinner, go to bars and do all sorts of activities together. These activities vary from going lasergaming to going on camp for a whole weekend. You can become a member of Hippeia all year round and you’ll have hardly any responsibilities and a lot of options. You can, for example, join one of the many committees at the core of Hippeia. By doing this, you won’t only help the club out but you can also learn a lot of things that’ll prove useful for the rest of your life.
The association is characterized by its small scale, diverse and accessible nature. With around 40 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.
At Hippeia you can continue horseriding thoughout your studentlife, but you can also do it for the first time! More information about our options for beginners can be found under ‘Horseriding at Hippeia’
