2023 Wichita Riding Academy, Inc. Drill Team!

Starting new adventures and having fun in 23'! 

What is an Equine Drill Team?

An equestrian drill team is a group of horses and riders performing choreographed maneuvers to music. Teams typically perform at rodeos, horse fairs, parades, benefits, and drill team competitions. Drill teams are intended to entertain, show sportsmanship, horsemanship, teamwork and dedication. (There are many videos on YouTube showing tons of different ideas)
