Lancaster University Equestrian Team
BRITISH UNIVERSITIES & COLLEGES SPORT
Eccleston Equestrian Centre are delighted to be the home venue for Lancaster University Equestrian Team when they compete in the BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sports) Equestrian Competition.
The programme is unique in equestrianism as all riders must compete on borrowed horses. This removes a barrier to participation as students do not need to own a horse. In addition the riders must compete in both dressage and show jumping with the combined scores making up the final result. As other equestrian events it is a mixed competition.
Over 160 teams take part in the BUCS Equestrian competition with first teams taking part in the Championship and second, third and fourth teams in the Trophy. The mini league winners compete in regional finals and those winners go onto the national finals.
Here are some pictures from the Roses competition with York University.
