Description

We are here to provide RPI students of all ability levels with the opportunity to learn how to ride hunt seat equitation.  As members of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) we also compete on the Zone 2, Region 3 show circuit. Hoping to advance their division and attend post-season competition, eligible riders show both individually and as a team in classes that range from Walk/Trot to 3ft fences.

We ride under the instruction of Megan Rogers, owner & trainer of Graystone Stables LLC in Altamont, NY.   Lessons are scheduled with the busy student in mind and are therefore grouped according to both ability and availability.  Students will be placed in a lesson group with 2-3 other members, one of whom will be responsible for for driving their group to and from the barn every week.  It is not required that you have any special equipment beyond riding pants and boots, however we do recommend that you bring your own helmet/half chaps/show clothes if possible.  Lessons run once a week for 10 weeks through both the Fall and Spring semester, though it is required that show riders lesson minimum of twice a week.  Lessons themselves are a 3 hour commitment:

30 minute dive there

30 minute pre-ride (catch/groom/tack up)

1 hour ride time

30 minute post-ride (cool down/turnout)

30 minute drive back

We aim for all our members to eventually achieve the fitness and excellence necessary to compete with the show team.  Please note that while we don't hold tryouts, we do host a trial ride at the beginning of the Fall semester to aid in lesson group placement and assess division qualifications for new members who wish to show.
