UW’s Equestrian team strives for a strong relationship with the community

The UW Equestrian Team is a club sport that encourages the community around Laramie to get involved. Though that community is mostly the equestrian community, the club offers things for everyone.

“I like the accessibility of the team since you don’t need experience or a horse,” Katherine York said.

The Equestrian Team is composed of approximately 45-50 members and three coaches that used to be on the team a few years back. Members can participate in English riding, Western riding, or both.

Being in college can be time consuming, leaving no time to care for an animal, so the Equestrian Team relies heavily on the community to provide horses they can use for practice and possibly showing events.
