Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

The officer board has been working hard behind-the-scenes all summer to prepare for our 2018-2019 season. We have a new English trainer this year, Kimberly Barber, and our western trainer, Barb Walton, is returning for her second year! New member events are listed below, and we recommend following us on Facebook for the most current events!

September 24/25th 11-3: Red Square Info Fair. At this campus-wide event you can meet some of our officers and learn more about the team.
October 1st 7pm: First mandatory team meeting (location TBD). This meeting is mandatory for potential and returning team members. At this meeting you will get more information about the team, tryouts, and shows (including show dates for the season!). We will also set up carpools for tryouts at this meeting. New members should arrive at 7pm; returning members should arrive at 8.
October 6th 11am: Western team tryouts (at Whatcom Stables)
October 7th 4pm: English team tryouts (at Orion Equestrian)
We recommend that riders with little/no experience riding tryout for both the English and Western teams, so they may be placed where spaces are available. Experienced riders can tryout and show in one or both disciplines.
October 8th 7pm: First meeting with the 2018-2019 team (location TBD). After tryouts, weekly team meetings will be Mondays at 7pm. The first meeting after tryouts will cover team values, logistical stuff, show attire (and making sure everybody is prepared for our first show), and ordering gear!
