How can I become a member
Each student in Eindhoven who has a valid sports card from the SSC can become a member of ESRV Concorde. You can join regardless if you want to be able to ride at a cheap price, to learn horseback riding or because you are looking for a fun society you can join, everyone is welcome. If you have your own horse and are not interested in following lessons, you can become a member to take part in the activities and the national competitions that you can compete in as a student rider. Becoming a member only costs €25,- excluding deposits (this does not include lessons, you have to pay these separately), and once you are a member you can take part in the lessons, activities, use the van and lots of other benefits.
Why become a member?
The lessons are not the only reason to become a member of ESRV Concorde. Here is a short list of the most attractive points why you should become a member:
- The cheapest place to do horse riding as a student in Eindhoven.
- Transport is arranged.
- Possibility to compete at national student competitions.
- Fun, social activities together with other people with a passion for horses
- Reduced price at Hubble Community Cafe.
Have we made you curious? Don’t hesitate to fill in the google forms document to get in touch with the board! If you already know how to ride you can follow a trial lesson. This costs €19,50 and then you can have a taste of what it means to be part of ESRV Concorde and then decide if you want to continue. You can also come to the stables without following a lesson to get a clearer picture of the stables and the society.
As of March 2022, the stables make use of a digital administration system called ManegePlan. With this system, members sign a lesson agreement and engage in a quarterly subscription consisting of 13 dressage lessons. Since there are no lessons in the summer break, the third quarter only consists of 7 lessons. Normally, the costs are €14,50 per lesson, but since we are a student sports association in Eindhoven that is affiliated with the ESSF, we are sponsored by the SSC for our lesson subscriptions. They can give us a refund of €3,75 per lesson, which makes the equestrian sport much more affordable and the cheapest in and around Eindhoven (€10,75 per lesson)! This refund works like a cashback system on your quarterly subscription only, so you first pay the full amount to the stables and then receive that back at the end of the quarter from the board. The costs for loose lessons are €19,50 per lesson and the refund from the SSC is not offered for loose/trial lessons.
If you do not have any experience you can sadly not follow a normal lesson as this may be too difficult, but you can get in touch with the board via the interest form as well and you will receive information about the beginnerscourse.
