For the Love of Horsemanship 20 September 2013
Horse riders of all abilities, even those who have never ridden before, find a supportive community in the Oberlin College Equestrian Team (OCET). Members of this thriving club sport—one of 21 at Oberlin—receive lessons and coaching at a locally owned and operated stable, and they have the opportunity to compete in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association’s competitions.
OCET trains and competes in two styles of riding: hunt seat equitation and western horsemanship/reining. Some members have experience in these disciplines, and others have backgrounds in eventing, saddleseat, and barrel racing.
