The UK Dressage Team competes with other colleges in the region. Team members will either ride a dressage test in front of a judge or will ride in dressage seat equitation. Dressage seat equitation is a flat class with other riders in that level; riders are judged solely on equitation and not the patterns of a test.

A student can get involved by coming to meetings and joining the team for events. Participants can also get involved by following the team’s social media outlets, which are kept up to date. The team does require tryouts to determine which level participants compete in. Those who try out will hear back with the results within a week of the final tryout.

The team uses and practices out of the facilities at Clover Hill Farm in Paris, Kentucky. The team’s coach is also based out of there, enabling access and the ability to ask questions when at the barn. Students do not need their own horse to be a part of this team. The farm has horses available for practices and competitions use the horses at the school the team competes at.

Something that the team is very proud of is even with the season getting cut short, the team placed third in the region. The team has riders from all different backgrounds and styles of riding, and loves to learn from each other to grow as riders and as people. The team would love to get to know you and welcome you to the family!
