From Leisure To Competition –
Horses Are For Everyone
At Gurgaon Horse Club we strive for internationally- inspired, structured lessons and professional grade facilities so that you can learn riding quickly, safely and above all – in an environment of dignity to horses and staff.
We cater to beginners and advanced students alike. Our qualified trainers have national and international qualifications, certifications and awards and offer a structured but fun approach to horse riding.
Continual assessment, feedback and regular ‘clinics’ are all part of our curriculum – and you don’t need to worry about safety as we have invested in professional grade equipment and implement regular safety checks.
Our facilities combine international standards with lush, green surroundings. We have four graded areas from beginner to advanced so that you safely and systematically can measure your progress. Jumping and dressage lessons take place in our extra-large enclosed arena equipped with numerous jumps and obstacles for varied, comprehensive learning - just 70m from the main club in a designated space. Our arena has been designed by our national award winning co-founder Joginder Singh Nain and we are always looking for new and improved ways to give even more to our students.
Uniquely in North India, our horses spend their social time in our enclosed arenas which also has a viewing area for joyrides or just enjoying the ambiance.
Our grounds offer various several areas to picnic and for children to play and explore. Our horses enjoy large stables with adequate protection from the weather and we have toilet and kitchen facilities onsite.
Our trainers are at the heart of your learning experience and we’ve chosen carefully to ensure a holistic and thorough riding experience. As co-founder, Joginder sets the standard as a national show jumping, pussiance and tent-pegging athlete. Rahul is a firm favourite and loved for his energy, passion and technical know-how alike. Our team is complemented by freelancer Kate O'Brien, an Irish instructor who brings international experience to our highly qualified team.
In combination, we offer the best of core skill instruction and innovation, horsemanship and equine connection as well as accelerated tracks for those wishing to qualify and participate in competitions.
Our horses are our pride and our joy. We combine the grace of thoroughbreds with the resilience of local breeds for familiarity and access to the beauty of variety. Our utmost priority is the health and wellbeing of our horses and we never cut corners. We provide premium horse feed, adhere to all preventive medical needs and ensure that our horses have the rest and rehabilitation that they need. When in doubt, we’ll always opt to cancel a lesson rather than risk the health of our horses. We invite you to come and see for yourself – we’ll take the time to explain to you all the measures in place to ensure their optimum health and well-being. From proud, national show jumper Jack Sparrow to sweet natured, melt-your-heart Shamrock to frisky, mischievous Vixen – our horses are looking forward to meet you.

Member Discounted Packages
We offer a range of discounted packages and timings for members to suit your schedule and regularity. Choose from our flexible book-as-you go packages of 12, 24 or 36 sessions.
Our training program follows a curriculum, developed especially by us, and we’ll be talking to you about milestones as you progress. We’ll ensure that your core skills are intact before introducing the next step. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and our monthly clinics give you the space to really work on any riding challenges with our senior trainer as a ‘quick booster’. We are student centred and your progress is our pride. We’ll be with you communicating and encouraging you through every part of your riding journey.
Led by our Director and national show jumping champion, Joginder, we specialise in preparing students, children and adults, for competitions in show jumping, dressage, puissance and tent pegging – up to national level. We offer a consulting session with Joginder to assess your needs and offer the training package which will help you or your child reach your aim most effectively. Jumping and other competition classes are held in a separate, designated arena just 70m from the main club.
We provide private lessons on request for those who require a more personal approach to learning whether general riding skills or preparing for a competition. Private lessons will also improve confidence and where required, enable you to move beyond your comfort zone.
For private lessons an advanced assessment is recommended by our instructors for optimum results. Lessons are conducted for one hour. Private lessons can be taken as individual classes or in a package on request.
Riding in the Great Outdoors – Aravalli Trails
Perfecting your core riding skills is important but there is nothing to compare to the experience of practicing your skills in a natural environment. We offer horse trails for all levels in the heart of the Aravalli Hills. We design a trail most suited to your needs and comfort and provide guided assistance for beginners and children. The trail is great for a family or friend's days out, for couples, tourists and corporate groups.
With the Gurgaon skyscrapers as a backdrop and green meadows, rugged paths and wildlife as your feet, the scene is set for relaxation and exhilaration as the rider, confronted with obstacles and challenges, really puts his/her skills to the test.
Afterwards, bring a carrot or two for the horses and enjoy our lush green lawn area post riding. Bring your morning tea or afternoon snack and get the most of the time-out with horses, nature and community.
Advanced notice of booking is required and we have a requirement of minimum three riders without surcharge. Due to health and safety procedures we have a weight limit of 90kg.
