Equine Students

The Equine program will be holding their Barn Orientation and Riding Evaluations for Freshmen on Tuesday, July 18th from 1-3:30 pm. Students will need to come appropriately dressed to ride and work in the barn.

This means:
• ASTM-SEI Approved helmet
• English paddock boots or tall boots and breeches
• Gloves
• For barn work: jeans are fine, boots of some sort (no sneakers!)

The evaluations in July will be performed in an english saddle, and students will ride both english and western (if they would like) in future semesters. Students are required to have appropriate english attire before the fall semester begins. Please contact Jessica Steward Riley with any questions.
