No! You don't need a horse to join the team is able to help connect incoming riders to local leases if needed. However, a horse whether leased, owned, or borrowed is required to compete.
How much experience do I need to join?
The team is open to all levels of experience though some basic riding experience is required. Riders compete from Intro (2'-2'3") to CCI** (3'7"). We welcome riders with a variety of backgrounds not limited to eventing and focus on the development of strong riders at any level.
How much time is required?
Time commitments range quarterly. We encourage all members to participate in as many events as they can but understand that managing a college schedule is difficult. Team members are required to participate in at least 5 lessons quarterly if competing as well as participate in fundraising efforts as well as unmounted team meetings.
Where does the team compete? Does everyone ride at the same barn?
Riders are not required to all ride at the same barn with the majority of our riders at Sunfire Equestrian Center, The UC Davis Equestrian Center or Holly Fox Farms. Riders are welcome to ride and board at any barn in the area. The team competes at every major venue in California focusing on Woodside, Fresno, Twin Rivers, and Woodland Stallion Station.
