Any UCF student, faculty, staff, or alumni is eligible to join the club. The club dues are $30 per year and no riding experience is necessary; members do not even have to learn how to ride to be involved! The club provides its members with several ways to get involved with their school and the community as well as promote equine education.
The club provides care and support for the Pegasus Mascot Program. It also competes in local riding competitions as well as the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association and the Intercollegiate Dressage Association sanctioned events. Riders can compete in Hunt Seat Equitation on the flat and over fences, USDF Recognized Dressage, and Western Horsemanship and reining events.
Most importantly, the club volunteers in the community at Freedom Ride. Freedom Ride is NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) certified to teach challenged children and adult riders. It is a wonderful theraputic program and it provides our members with several ways to volunteer at the farm.
