Eventing Club

The purpose of the Eventing Club is to expand student knowledge of the sport of eventing (an equestrian pursuit not offered as part of the regular programs). Education about the sport, trips to local competitions, and the preparation of the horse for eventing are some of the club’s activities.

The Eventing Club focuses on educating it’s members about the sport of eventing. Members have volunteered at the Carolina Horse Park, Raeford NC at the Carolina International CIC 3* where they met some of the leaders in the sport.  The club supports its members at local schooling dressage shows. Future plans include an emphasis on fitness for both horse and human and preparing for our first horse trial or combined training event.

President: Gaby Stephens. Advisor: Jackie Dwelle
