Equestrian Club

screen-shot-2016-09-27-at-11-02-48-pmEssentially, anyone who takes lessons through the Equestrian Club & Team is a part of the Wooster Equestrian Club. The President of the College of Wooster Equestrian Club & Team and our coaches organize riding lessons at the beginning of both the fall and spring semester. Normally, club members take 10 weekly lessons per semester.

Equestrian club coordinated lessons are usually group lessons with other equestrian club members. These lessons are always taught by Equestrian Team coaches at their respective riding facilities. Lessons take approximately 2 to 2.5 hours and consist of grooming the horses, tacking the horses up, riding, cooling the horses down, and untacking the horses. For more detailed information, see the Lessons page.


Fall Formal 2015

Equestrian Club also hosts many social events throughout the year for members to get together. Some events include our Fall Formal and trips to the local tack shop.

Yes, we always welcome new riders! New riders can even compete on the Equestrian Team if they want—we usually always need more beginning riders to compete.

Do I need a horse in order to take lessons?

You do NOT need a horse in order to take lessons. Our coaches provide the horse and tack.
