Western Equestrian Team at UCF

The official page for the UCF Western Equestrian Team in Orlando, Florida. During the post-season, we send our top riders to regionals and semi-finals.

The Equestrian Club at the University of Central Florida was founded in 2002 with four members that were the sole caretakers of UCF's Equine Mascot, "Pegasus." Today, the club is considered a "Tier Three" Sport Club at UCF and includes three competitive teams with over 50 members. Coached by Avery Sinclair, the Western Team competes in Zone 5 Region 5 of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association

Operating as usual

Thank you so so much to Sandy Curl and Shannon Holbin for putting on such a great clinic for our team! Thank you to Chris Holbin for helping us get your horses ready and let us watch you work with a young gelding! Today was an extraordinary opportunity for our team and could not have asked for better clinicians! We appreciate everyone who helped make today happen.

UCF Western Equestrian Team Home Show, organized by Katherine McCann 13/01/2024

Our home show is quickly approaching. Hosting a show is a great fundraiser but there’s a lot of up front expenses that we have to account for. Looking for sponsors to help with costs like horse rentals, facility fee, prizes, judge and staff fee, and shavings! If you are able to donate or would be willing to help cover shavings costs, we would greatly appreciate it and add you to our sponsor list.

Thank you for the donations and shares. 🖤💛
