The Western Equestrian Club offers its members an opportunity to socialize with other student riders, improve their skills, 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 OE (Ontario Equestrian) Membership.
Please contact us if you have any questions, concerns or inquiries!
About the President
I’m Teri and I’m in my fourth year at Ivey. I have been part of the Equestrian Club and our OCEA team since first year, and have held various roles on the executive since second year. I’ve been riding for 16 years and competed in equitation, hunter and jumper classes in everything from the local to national circuit, and have had many opportunities to train young horses! I joined the club and the OCEA team to meet people with similar interests while at school, and because riding is a huge source of happiness for me! I was so excited to come to a school that I knew had such an active club, and I hope that whatever your experience that you will get the same enjoyment I have over the years. There is something here for everyone, whether you’re a competitor or have never ridden before! I look forward to meeting all of you, and please feel free to connect with any questions you may have.
