Our Activities

As a member, you'll have access to:

  • Trainings: We regularly organize dressage and jumping training sessions, along with special courses from time to time. Don't worry if you don't have your own horse; we provide school horses for these sessions.

  • Competitions: Qualified riders have the opportunity to represent Switzerland in national student riding competitions in Germany (known as CHUs) and at international student riding tournaments (known as SRNCs). These competitions are conducted on provided horses, so there's no need to bring your own.

  • Social events: Beyond horseback riding, we love spending time together. Whether it's at our regular meetups, sunny BBQs by Lake Zurich, collective outings to parties, or traveling in small groups, there's always something happening.

The Academic Equestrian Section Zurich, or simply ARS Zurich, serves students from the Zurich and St. Gallen areas.


The Academic Riding Club Bern, or ARK Berne for short, caters to students in and around the Bern area.
