Horsing Around with the St Andrews Riding Club

I was the one horsing around; they were competing.

If you didn’t know that St Andrews had a horse riding team, then I pity you. For here lies possibly one of the most inclusive, fun and hardworking sports clubs at the entire university.

Last Wednesday I made the trek (haha “trek,” I took a taxi) up to Drumcarrow Equestrian to cover the Riding Club’s first competition of the year. I was just excited to see some horses up close, but even more excited to find out that our riding team are actually very good at what they do.

The B Riding Team competed against teams from Dundee University, Strathclyde University, and Aberdeen University in dressage and jumping. Dressage was explained to me, a person with no equestrian knowledge whatsoever, by some of the riders as the “boring” part of the competition where the aim is to “try and look pretty while riding a horse,” which apparently includes tucking elbows in while you ride. Jumping, meanwhile, was “much more exciting” due to the added element of speed, air time, and some danger.

Regardless of how it was described to me, I was immediately swept up by the whole competition, much more so than I was rugby. For here I was watching a group of people with undeniable love for each and every horse they rode, undeniable talent for riding and jumping, and undeniable enthusiasm for what they do, riding and jumping horses on a Wednesday arvo.

What’s more, after absolutely killing it in dressage (or so I was told, I don’t know how dressage works) and flawlessly hurdling the jumps, there were Red Ribbons all around – St Andrews finished first overall in the team division, with St Andrew’s girl Emily Lacey also placing first for the individual prize.

But what’s even cooler is the fact that this club – who has clearly already established itself as the one to beat in riding competitions – is willing and able to help you become great at riding too.

Lesson sign-ups are on Wednesdays 8-9 pm at the Union Main Bar, and the club trains once a week. And, not only are they a friendly bunch, but if you sign up you’ll get to pat horses AND DOGS at Drumcarrow at least once a week. And if that’s not enough of an incentive, then I don’t know is.

One other subject I would like to talk about is that there are numerous games out there designed specifically for toddler age small children.

  10. Thanks for your short article. I would like to say that the health insurance broker also works for the benefit of the particular coordinators of a group insurance policy. The health insurance professional is given a list of benefits desired by someone or a group coordinator. Such a broker really does is hunt for individuals or maybe coordinators which in turn best match those wants. Then he gifts his suggestions and if both sides agree, the broker formulates a legal contract between the two parties.

The most effective way to burn fat is by getting it little by little and right after some basic tips which can provide help to make the most from your attempt to shed weight. You may understand and be following many of these tips, although reinforcing expertise never hurts.

  14. In the great scheme of things you actually receive a B+ for effort. Exactly where you misplaced me ended up being in all the details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me say to you just what did deliver the results. Your writing is definitely pretty convincing and that is probably why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that.

One thing I also believe is the fact that credit cards giving a 0 rate of interest often lure consumers in zero interest, instant endorsement and easy on-line balance transfers, nevertheless beware of the main factor that is going to void your current 0 easy streets annual percentage rate as well as throw one out into the poor house fast.

  23. One other issue issue is that video games usually are serious in nature with the principal focus on finding out rather than enjoyment.

Thanks for your write-up.

  24. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

  25. Thanks for your post on this weblog. From my personal experience, many times softening right up a photograph may provide the digital photographer with a little an artistic flare.

  38. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thanks, However I am encountering difficulties with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I can’t subscribe to it. Is there anybody else getting similar RSS problems? Anyone who knows the solution will you kindly respond? Thanx!

  39. I realized more new things on this weight-loss issue. Just one issue is that good nutrition is very vital any time dieting. A huge reduction in fast foods, sugary food, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and white colored flour products can be necessary. Keeping wastes harmful bacteria, and wastes may prevent desired goals for fat loss. While specific drugs briefly solve the issue, the awful side effects are not worth it, and they also never give more than a non permanent solution. It is just a known indisputable fact that 95 of celebrity diets fail. Thank you for sharing your thinking on this blog site.

  40. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  61. Thanks for your write-up. I would also love to say that the very first thing you will need to do is determine if you really need credit restoration. To do that you need to get your hands on a copy of your credit score. That should not be difficult, ever since the government mandates that you are allowed to be issued one cost-free copy of your real credit report each year. You just have to inquire the right people. You can either look into the website for that Federal Trade Commission or even contact one of the main credit agencies immediately.
