Equestrian

The Queen Mary Equestrian Club allows students to enjoy the activity of Horse Riding in London. Many students are often unaware that they can continue to horse ride when they come to London or often feel the price is too high. QM Equestrian has made it possible to overcome both these barriers. With low riding prices and the opportunity for beginners to learn, this new society welcomes all students. Joining QM Equestrian is a great way to meet new people who share a common interest and get great value for money too.

Sessions

You don’t need to be a member to join a lesson during the first 2 weeks of a term.

Equipment: All riders must wear a riding helmet - these are provided by the riding establishments we use.

Boots with a small heel must be worn for riding.

Commitment levels required: Beginners are expected to attend most of the beginners’ course.

Competitions

Personal Fitness

QMSU offers a gym on the Mile End campus, Qmotion, as well as a sister-gym in Charterhouse Square, Fitness to Practice, both with competitive student membership rates. This is ideal for students who want to purchase a gym membership - which is separate from a Club Sport subs - to improve and maintain peak physical fitness.

With every gym membership, you get a free 60 minute one-to-one session with trained instructors which includes:

  • A personalised gym programme tailored to your own fitness goals;
  • A full demonstration of exercise and techniques, and guidance on resistance machines;
  • Information and advice on nutrition;
  • A 60 minute review session every 6-8 weeks to re-evaluate and re-customise a new programme to avoid plateaus.
