About the Association

U.S.R. Hippeia is the association of Utrecht students who love riding and socializing. With its 80 year 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. On ‘t Hoogt stables in Utrecht there are advanced, intermediate and beginner lessons taught, 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 lesson Hippeia organizes many activities, both with and without horses. So we go on trail rides, have jumping clinics, participate in national competitions, we go to wine tastings and pubquizes and of course we organize get-togethers and then there is the annual camp! All this is completely optional. This also applies to the many committees that Hippeia is rich. Do you like to organize events or make Hippeia better 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 character. With around 40 members there is a nice and personal ambiance. Everyone knows each other and everyone is welcome; the jumble of studies, ages, levels and backgrounds demonstrates this. The association offers something for everyone and so all can enjoy their time at U.S.R. Hippeia however they like.
