Equestrian at SNU

 The SNU Western Equestrian Team...  competes in horsemanship and reining classes.  In the horsemanship classes, riders demonstrate each gate on the rail, and are then asked to execute a pattern to show their control of the horse.

typically takes place in small groups two or three times a week, depending on students schedules.  Riders are encouraged to spend time riding outside of practice, and instruction is nearly always available to hard working competitors.  Practice begins with a warm-up on the rail, and ends with pattern excecution.  These practices are instructed by the western coach, Megan Parker.

Clothing Includes...   traditional western clothing, a western hat, and chaps.  SNU Western riders compete against schools such as WTAMU, Texas Tech, NCTC, RCC, and OU.
