“My time with the Seton equestrian club impacted me as both rider and teacher. I was able to attach myself to my school through my passion, and I am able to continue that connection with teaching and mentoring. My time as a coach has helped me realize just how lucky I was to have the equestrian club as a student, and I support its growth for the next generation of riders.”

Being part of the ESHS Equestrian Team was and still is an immensely rewarding parts of my life for many reasons. One of the most important aspects of the team was the family it provided me. As an older sister of seven brothers, I never had any older sibling figures until I went to tryouts the summer before freshman year and I automatically had older sisters that would give me advice on anything and motivate me to be my best and be myself. So as a freshman, I already had a little family that was there for me on the first day and made me feel welcome and appreciated. In turn, I was able to become an older sister and mentor to the incoming freshman on the team which was a beautiful experience also.

In addition to family, my riding improved as the years went by. So much so, I was able to compete in the highest level--which I never thought I would be able to do. Plus, I learned valuable leadership and people skills from our team captain that inspired and led me to become the team captain my junior and senior years. I can not forget the most incredible, fun and noteworthy team bonding riding activities we did. We went trail riding, rode in the dark with glow sticks, swimming, played games, had pony dress up competitions, you name it. All of this made the competing part less stressful because we were so comfortable with horses and I now advocate for us to do similar activities on my college equestrian team.

Another really important aspect of the team that has actually shaped my career path was the fact that I had a home away from home where I had responsibilities and a comfortable place to go whenever I was stressed. As an expensive sport, our team coaches and mentors where very understanding of our member’s financial situations and provided us with opportunities to help. I became a working student and the barn became my second home. At the barn I learned about all the different aspects of Equine management, nutrition, and care. I was able to learn about signs to look for in sick horses, the common medicines we can give, the proper practices for overall horse health and more. I was also able to be a camp counselor during the summer time with other members of our team and I found my passion for teaching. All of these experiences led me to get the job I have now as an animal caretaker and educator at a nature center and farm. Plus, as a prevet student, I cherish the tools and knowledge I have gained that have propelled my career forward. I could not have made the long lasting friendships, family, and life-skills that I have under my belt, without the Equestrian Team.
