The University of Alabama Equestrian Program is excited to offer an opportunity for high school students to experience the collegiate equestrian life through Ride With The Tide’s camps.
The UA Equestrian Team Welcomes you
The mission of The University of Alabama Equestrian Program is to provide University of Alabama students and special populations access to the opportunities and benefits of equestrian activities. This outreach will occur through a pursuit of academic equine degree programs and classes, IHSA competitive teams and equine assisted therapeutic riding with a research focus on the science of therapeutic riding.
The University of Alabama Equestrian Team competes in IHSA and has won High Point Team numerous times, High Point Rider awards and Most Outstanding Player at the competitions. Two years in a row the Alabama Equestrian team has made their way to nationals and brought home respectable ribbons and for the first time in UA history we had a rider qualify for The Cacchione Cup. We have begun a fundraising campaign for a state of the art equestrian facility necessary for our Program to grow. The Tide is on the Rise and making a name for itself. Please take a look at our website to see how The University of Alabama Equestrian Program is focused on providing University of Alabama students and special populations access to the opportunities and benefits of equestrian activities.
Proposed Equestrian Facility
A beautiful new facility is being planned near campus which will be convenient for students and spectators as it is only 5 minutes from campus.
Proper training facilities are essential for the development of champion athletes in any discipline. Currently the team operates out of a private farm in Tuscaloosa but needs its own facility to expand into western, polo, eventing and to start a therapeutic riding program.
Naming opportunities exist at all levels of support for the new facility. Your donation will attach your name to a facility that will advance the level of equestrian competition at the University of Alabama, placing the University in a unique and enviable position among an elite list of schools that have championship equestrian teams.
