NCAA Equestrian teams in college?
I am extremely interested in making a NCAA team, but i'm not sure if I am good enough.
The main school I am looking into going to is Texas A&M, which makes me even more nervous as it is one of the topped ranked schools. I would be applying out of state.
ACT Composite 29
Volunteer hours(over 200 at a theraputic riding center)
Helped organize school activities(yellow ribbon week, help our troops, food drive)
5 years of solid lessons
I have had a horse on feed lease for 2 years, and one year remaining
I jump 3'6 on my horse, and 2'9 or 3' on the others I ride
I help my trainer ride a lot of the extra horses almost every day (2 or 3 along with mine)
I normally place top 3 in equitation (flat and 3')
I have recieved several year end awards(14-17 equitation, childrens hunters)
I can handle most bolts and spooks fine, bucks still unseat me too easilly
Last year I showed a lot, but we have been restrained because of financial reasons reciently
I am a barn rat and know a lot about basic vet care
I am head of the working student program at my barn
I want to make it on a team so bad it makes my stomach hurt.
If anyone can give me advice on anything or tell me what I can work on I would love it!
And do you guys think I have a chance at making an NCAA team? Texas A&M?
