Learn Outside the Classroom with Our Many Extracurricular Clubs
Your college experience isn’t complete without extracurricular activities to enhance your education beyond the classroom. Luckily, St. Andrews has many equestrian clubs to get students involved in all aspects of the equine industry. These clubs are not only useful for equine students but are also an excellent option for students in other degree programs who have an interest in equine activities. You’ll make new friends, meet professionals in the equestrian community, provide impactful volunteer help, experience new things, and have fun! Learn more about our equestrian clubs on this page. You can also see our students in action by scheduling a campus visit. We can’t wait to show you around!
Get Involved with Our Equestrian Clubs
We offer many opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom, deepening their skills and creating a social environment that’s perfect for networking. Our equestrian clubs include:
Pre-Veterinary Club: This club is meant to inform students about the different careers in the veterinary profession. It also provides networking opportunities with fellow students and professional veterinarians. The club regularly volunteers with the Scotland County Humane Society as well as Scotia Village and hosts annual events for both students and community members.
Riding Council: All equestrian students are automatically enrolled as a member of the Riding Council. As part of this club, students help the Equestrian Program prepare for and organize shows that are hosted at our Equestrian Center. The club also facilitates many other activities, including community service, orientation events, open houses, and social and recreational events.
Eventing Club: The Eventing Club is focused on educating club members about the sport of eventing, an equestrian activity we do not offer as part of our equestrian studies. Members learn about the sport through trips to local competitions as well as instruction on preparing horses for eventing shows.
Therapeutic Horsemanship Club: This club provides students with an opportunity to experience therapeutic horsemanship opportunities and activities beyond the academic offerings. One of the main activities is the Ride-Like-A-Knight volunteer program.
