Team Information

The University of Alabama Equestrian Program started officially roughly 5 years ago as a Club Sport.  It has experienced tremendous growth in the last 2 years competing in the IHSA Division.  The mission and purpose of our program is to provide multiple venues for which all University of Alabama students can experience the benefits of riding horses.  That is why we provide a €Horseback riding class in the Kinesiology department through the School of Education.  We also have the UAET Hunt and western seat teams that provide the competitive experience for those who have are interested.  In the coming years, we hope to expand the equestrian opportunities to include polo.

My time as a rider on the University of Alabama Equestrian Program has dramatically shaped my professional skill sets as well as my work ethic. Trying to fit workouts, team practices, meets and my studies into a daily calendar quickly teaches anyone how to manage time and pinpoint priorities. I'm confident that when I graduate, I'll have a degree that will help me find a job and be ahead of others in understanding the importance of processing priorities.
