Worcester Riders Saddle Up For US Tour

19 April 2018

Captain of the University Blues Equestrian team Tora Fleming (2016, Chemistry), and Madeleine Dale (2017, Medicine), are heading Stateside with the Oxford University Equestrian Club to compete against some of the best riders America has to offer.

Taking place over two and a half weeks in September, ten members of the Club will tour Universities on the East Coast – including Yale, Cornell and Dartmouth – competing in dressage and jumping in a points based league to decide an overall winner, the US or Oxford.

It’s the first time the Club has toured the US and it’s a fantastic and rare opportunity for riders to compete internationally. To ensure the trip is inclusive and open to all team members, regardless of financial circumstance, the Club is fundraising to make the trip free for all riders.

To raise the £15,000 required the Club is hosting an online auction with a fantastic variety of prizes (equestrian and not) and are accepting donations from supporters here.
