Since 1987, the Notre Dame & Saint Mary's Equestrian team has provided riders from both schools with not only quality horse time and riding lessons, but also valuable friendships with teammates, as well as the opportunity to compete for Notre Dame across the region. This year, the team finished 3rd in the region, sending 5 riders to Regionals - which we proudly hosted this year - and sending 2 riders on to Zones, and 1 on to Nationals this May in Kentucky. Our team and our horses are important to us, so we hope that this Notre Dame Day, we can celebrate what we love most about Notre Dame by raising money for team activities and travel, and especially for the care of our horses. Please visit www.notredameequestrian.com to see more information about our team and our horses, and don't forget to vote for us!
Donations are applied to various horse care and show expenses. For every $10 we receive, we can feed and board one of our horses for a day. For $20, we can purchase a new set of brushes to groom our horses. With $30, we can purchase a new set of stirrups or a new pad for one of our team saddles. For a $50 gift, we can book a hotel room for one of our team members to compete out of state. Of course, any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated!
We receive a very limited amount of funding from the University, so donations are imperative for us to continue to provide quality horse care and remain competitive in our region! Thank you in advance for your generosity!
