Become a member of the Wimbledon Village Stables Riding Club, London

If you want to ride regularly and spend time indulging your passion for horses with like-minded people in a friendly and unique environment, membership is for you!

You do not need to be a member to ride with us, but our Members’ Club enables you to take advantage of a wide range of exclusive benefits in and out of the saddle.  These include: generous discounts on all rides, priority bookings and regular and guaranteed riding times.

As well as horse-riding activities, as a Member, you’ll also be invited to the numerous social and educational events which we organise throughout the year – from dressage demos and educational talks to pub quizzes and our amazing annual charity ball, where you can swap breeches for ball gowns or bow-ties.

Joining as a Member and regular rider also gives you the opportunity to get to know us better and vice versa – helping us to make your every visit as rewarding as possible.

    simon new“As someone for whom regular riding has become essential, WVS Gold Membership is perfect for me: I know that there will be a happy, engaged horse ready for me every Saturday afternoon, and looking forward to this helps to make the working week that much better. It is obvious how well cared for the horses are, because they are willing and forward and clearly enjoy their work. Not only are the staff talented and confidence-inspiring, they are also great fun, whether having a chat as we hack around the common or dancing at the annual charity ball. And what really sets WVS apart for me is the fantastic atmosphere and community around the yard – I have made so many new friends since I joined!”

      silver member karen“Although theoretically I should have more time on my hands because I am not working full time I usually find myself rushing around trying to fit everything in. Being a Silver Member means that I know whatever happens I can get to ride every week when I want to and Claire in the office is very good at changing my ride around if I get stuck. I tend to go away most holidays with my family but it’s nice to know that when I return I’ll be in ‘The Book’ and able to catch up again with my riding friends.”

      associate member briony“Associate membership is ideal for me because it’s so flexible: I really value being able to ride at different times during the week. Plus I love riding different horses regularly – it’s great riding experience, and lovely to get to know them all. Being able to attend lectures and join in events is fantastic – they are a great complement to the riding – and, of course, the priority booking and discounted rates are a major bonus!”

        private member annie (1)“I just love to know that when I come riding every week I can go at exactly the pace I want.  Sometimes I just want to stroll around the Common, relax and enjoy the view but another day I want to be put through my paces,   Being a private member gives me flexibility to decide on the day what I want to do and it always makes it an enjoyable experience.”
