Whatever your equestrian addiction, you're sure to satisfy your craving for everything equestrian with the University of Waterloo Equestrian Club.



The University of Waterloo Equestrian Club was founded in 2005/06 by Lisa Cahill and other equestrian enthusiasts. The grounding principle was to have a student run club which promotes the equestrian sport through events, clinics, socials and competitions. Although the club started out small, the club has grown each year, allowing more events and ideas to substitute the equestrian world most members had to leave behind when they start university.


The purpose of the University of Waterloo Equestrian club is to:

• Increase and promote an interest in horses, the equine industry and equestrian events.

• Meet and provide contact with other horse enthusiasts at this and other universities.

• Plan events and activities including (but not limited to): lessons, trail rides, clinics, parties and outings.

• Foster and encourage further education, knowledge and experience with horses and the horse industry as well as improve riding ability and general horsemanship through lesson programs, clinics, and events made available to members.
