University of Waterloo Equestrian Club

UWEQ Show Team


Our Equitation Show team is a subsection of our club that was founded by  in 2007 and is a proud member of the Ontario University Equestrian Association (OUEA). The basic premise behind the OUEA was to give university students a chance to continue showing without the traditional costs associated with traditional horse ownership. Riders will show up to the show and will draw a horse at random to ride. They will be expected to navigate an equitation course or flat the horse without any prior contact or warm up with the horse. It is an exciting twist on traditional showing and the circuit caters to a wide variety of rider levels as well.

Our team is made up of 15-20 riders with various levels of show experience. Try outs are available in August of each year and all riders are asked to try out annually for the team. If you are interested in trying out for the team, please send us an email!
