Club Sport: Equestrian Team 2018
The Colorado College Equestrian Team is a club sport made up of riders of all levels from beginners to 3’6" jumpers. Our team is a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association and travels anywhere from Nebraska to Wyoming to compete in two-day horse shows about five times throughout the school year. Riders qualify for regionals, zones, and eventually nationals if they accumulate enough points! A special thanks to our trainer, Tracey Powers, who has made the existence of this team possible and supports us at every show we travel to. We appreciate everything that Tracey, Colorado College, and alumni have done for us—without them we would not be where we are as a team today!
The CC Equestrian Team fosters a fun community where horse-lovers can come together and learn or improve not only their riding skills, but also how to care for horses on the ground. Your gift will help support the team by making lessons and shows more affordable, therefore allowing us to grow into a more knowledgeable and competitive team in the IHSA field. Last year donations helped us send a member of our team to Zones at Stanford in San Francisco, CA! She placed third in the Intermediate Flat division! This year we already have three members going to Regionals and we're hoping they will make it to Zones too! We have also been able to fund hotel rooms and riding gear for the whole team! None of this would have been possible without your support!
The bonds with the horses and the friendships formed between teammates are everlasting, and we hope you will support us in our endeavors to grow as a team and succeed in the sport!
