This site is still under construction! Information and page navigation may be incomplete.

Members can participate in riding lessons with other Mines students, compete through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA), or spend time around horses through volunteering or watching lessons.

We have our English team riding out of Coventry Farms in Littleton and will look into expanding to include a Western team if there is enough interest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a horse?

Nope! Our trainers supply the lesson horses at no additional cost.

What if I have never ridden before?

No prior experience is needed! Anyone from a first-time rider to an advanced rider is welcome to ride with us.

What do I need to do to become a member?

We don’t have any club dues or requirements, you can email mineseqteam@gmail.com or come to one of our meetings if you are interested in joining! We do not require members to participate in any events to stay members, but we highly recommend being active and involved!

How do I get to lessons?

If you have access your own car, Coventry Farms is about a 25 minute drive from campus. If you don’t have access to a car, you can carpool with members of the same or an earlier lesson.
