The UC Davis Three-Day Event Team Stands Strong on The West Coast

University of California, Davis (UC Davis) offers many perks for eventers continuing their careers through college or for those who want to try the sport for the first time. With small local shows, nearby cross country courses, and top rated events only a few hours away, there is truly something for everyone. We even have our own derby field and cross-country jumps at the university equestrian center (The EQC as we call it) where most of the team members keep their horses. The EQC has everything an eventer could need, including that derby field, as well as a track, outdoor arenas, hacking space, and a massive indoor. Plus, it’s just a short walk from the UC Davis Veterinary School, the US News & World Report’s #1 ranked veterinary school in the country.

The vet school is home to a top-notch teaching hospital, which has helped numerous team members with their own horses. We all wish nothing ever happened to our equine partners, but we know accidents and emergencies are never totally avoidable, and it has made a huge difference for team members dealing with emergency colics, lameness, or other veterinary issues. Having such a great resource close by helps bring some peace of mind, since we all know how fragile horses can be!

As the school year closes (only 5 more weeks!), we look forward to our team shows at Woodland Stallion Station and Woodside Horse Park. If you are going to be at any of these shows, please don’t hesitate to come talk to us! Whether you’re a fellow collegiate eventer at your own school, applying to colleges or thinking about college, team members love to talk about what it is that we do, and we are always happy to answer any questions you might have. We would also love to help you start a program at your own school to get more teams on the west coast, so feel free to contact us! College is fun, but eventing in college makes it that much better! With such a great support network in the team, balancing school and riding is doable in college.

We would also like to thank our sponsors Higby’s Country Feed, Brenda's Tack Warehouse, Kastel, and Revitavet, and our coach, Holly Fox, who make all of this possible for us.
