Welcome to the website of the student horseriding association A.S.R. BLOK!
A.S.R. BLOK is a horseriding association especially for students. Every wednesday night we come together at the Hollandsche Manege to ride the horses and to have some drinks! Besides these nights we also organize other activities with horses like: trail rides, beach rides and competitions. There are also social activities to have fun and to relax like: ice skating, a boat tour on the canals and cocktailworkshops. A.S.R. BLOK strives to keep all BLOK-members active in horseriding and in this way contribute to an active, sportive and social student life in Amsterdam.
If you want you can be more active within the association and join a committee or join the board. You can ask the current board to give you more information about this.
The horseriding lessons
BLOK-members are never bored on wednesday nights. There are several horseriding lessons of different levels, so anyone can find a spot that is suitable. Besides that we make dinner for all BLOK-members (€3,00 per meal) and we have drinks at the bar. The current program of the horseriding lessons:
19.00 – 20.00: Least advanced (inside arena)
19.00 – 20.00: Most advanced (outside arena)

You can discuss with the board to join a lesson of the Hollandsche Manege at 20.00 o’clock.
