The Wilson College Western Team is an up and rising team with hopes of showing in the IHSA Western Division this year. The team strives to produce professionally put together equitation riders and instill knowledge of western riding and horsemanship into the team.
Western Team Practice
Each riding member of the team is placed into a practice lesson with other members who ride near the same level as themselves. Lessons last an hour long and are coached by a knowledgeable instructor with much western riding experience. Practice is focused towards the western rider position and ridden horsemanship patterns, in order for show preparation.
The team competes through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association in the Western Division.
We compete within Zone Three Region One; which includes schools such as: Wilson College, Bucknell University, Gettysburg College, Juniata College, Millersville University and Penn State.
In competition we draw horses from the hosting school, and without warm-up go into the ring and show the horses to the best of our ability within that specific class.
The Wilson College Western Team’s 2010-2011 show schedule is to be announced in the upcoming months.
