The Western Equestrian Team offers its members an opportunity to socialize with other student riders and stay involved with horses during University – both recreationally and competitively! We welcome riders of all disciplines and experience levels, and offer lessons in dressage, western riding, and hunter/jumper. Our club also oversees four competitive teams that show on the OCEA, IHSA, and IDA circuit.

* All active Equestrian Club members require an OEF (Ontario Equestrian Federation) Membership.
About the President
My name is Kathryn and I’m in my 4th year studying criminology. I have been a member of the Equestrian Club for all four years of my time at Western, and have also taken on various roles on the executive and within our competitive teams. I have been riding for 17 years and shown in a variety of disciplines including eventing, dressage, jumpers, and hunters. I first joined the club and the OCEA team to meet fellow equestrians at Western. The club has allowed me to form long-term friendships and connections with people with a shared interest in horses. There is something for everyone in this club, whether you’ve been riding for years and want to keep going, or have no experience with horses and want to learn something new!
