Volunteer Opportunity!

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the late notice but there is a volunteer opportunity for tomorrow, Saturday September 29th to help set up for the Northwest Washington Horse Expo that is taking place next weekend.  If you are available to volunteer, it will be taking place from 9am to 12pm at the Northwest Washington Fair in the horse barn (where we have our show).  If you are able to come, please text Alexa!

Also, there are a few more reminders before the meeting next Tuesday.  In addition to your printed USHJA membership card and printed and signed IHSA individual application and fee, you will also need to bring your filled out and signed Student Driver Agreement and Hold Harmless form, both of which can be found here:

Failure to bring these items will result in your inability to show at the first competition pertaining to your discipline.  Also note that we are taking attendance at every team-related event this year. If you fail to attend the meeting Tuesday OR do not give us 24 hours notice as to why you are not attending, you will not have priority to show and further consequences may result. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the officers.  Thanks!

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2012-2013 WWU Equestrian Team season, we hope everyone enjoyed their summer breaks!  

New Members: 

Welcome to the team, we look forward to getting to know all of you throughout the year!  The New Member Informational Meeting will take place Thursday October 4th from 6pm to 8pm in Wade King Recreation Center Conference Room.  Please note, you will need your student ID card to enter the Rec Center.  During this meeting, we will give you a rundown of what it is like to be on the team and what to expect.  Mandatory try-outs/evaluations will take place the weekend of October 6-7 with English taking place one day and Western on the other (times to be determined and confirmed at the meeting).  If you have friends who are interested in joining the team, please pass this information along!  Good luck on your first day of classes and we'll see you all next Thursday!

Returning Members: 

Please renew your IHSA membership and print your application to bring to our first meeting (date and time to be determined).  If you ride Hunt Seat, you will also need to renew your USHJA membership, pay the $15 application fee, and bring a print-out of your new membership card to the meeting as well.  There is more information on how to do this in the email that you should be receiving soon.  

The team due for this year is $250 which can be paid at the glass office in the Rec Center.  Checks should be made out to WWU Equestrians.  The account should be set up by October 1st so you can bring your checks by anytime after that.  Also, please bring cash to the first meeting to pay for your IHSA individual membership fee.  This is $30 if you will be riding one discipline only or $40 if you will ride both.  

Lastly, please send your school/work schedules to Rachel and Alexa as soon as possible, so we can begin to organize the practice schedules.  

You will receive an email when we have a date and time set for the first meeting and the information will be updated on the calendar as well.  Have a good first day back to school!
