Competitive Clubs


The Carleton Equestrian Club, one of the university’s newest Ravens competitive organizations, was formed in the fall of 2016.

Recognized as one of Carleton’s Competitive Clubs, the Ravens Equestrian team is dedicated to bringing equestrians of all levels, from novice to serious competitors, together in a fun, dynamic team environment. To allow for the continuing development of our riders, we have an established lesson program with our head coach Taylor Brooks out of Wynbrook Farm.  Look for our team as we compete on the Ontario Collegiate Equestrian Association (OCEA).
