The tradition of student riding goes far back at Uppsala University, the riding department was founded 1663 and is one of the oldest in the world. At first the idea was to provide the sudents (in those days sons of nobility) the opportunity of practising certain excercises that were considered important, such as fencing, arts and of course riding. Today, over 350 years later, equestrian sport is more popular than ever.
