Wilson’s equestrian teams are constantly growing and changing. Each year, new students come to campus and become a part of the equestrian facility and all that it stands for. This month, we are going to focus on the Wilson College Eventing Team. Not many people know what the sport of three-day eventing is and what it entails.
The sport of three-day eventing is a three phase sport that involves show jumping, dressage, and cross country riding. At Wilson, our eventing team works to promote the education of students on the sport of three-day eventing and their involvement at the Penn Hall Equestrian Center.
This year, the Captain of the Eventing Team is Hannah Femia ’22. She is currently working on setting up volunteer opportunities at local eventing trials. She aims to get the team more involved in the community so that they can eventually be a competing team.
Another goal of the team for this year is to find a coach. As the team continues to grow, they want to hire a coach, become more involved, and then begin competing and representing Wilson at local events.
All are welcome to join the team and learn more about what the team does and how they operate. The Eventing Team has a fun atmosphere that encourages good horsemanship and dedication to the horses at Wilson.
