What a great time last weekend was! I was really excited to get to meet some girls who were interested in Judson's Equine program and to get to share with them what our program is all about.
Last Saturday (September 25, 2010) was Judson's first ever Equine Preview Day. It was a day designed to provide a more in-depth look at the equine program then Judson's regular preview days because it was meant specifically for prospective students interested in the equine program at Judson. Attendees got to talk to the equine instructors and to current equine students. They were able to ask questions about the riding classes, the JC Equestrian Team, and the academic major and minor in Equine Studies all of which helped give them an idea of what life at Judson as an equestrienne is like. They also got to watch a performance by The Judson Equestrian Team, giving them the opportunity to see what type of riding we do here and to have the chance to meet some of our amazing Judson horses. It was really neat to see the excitement that some of these girls had about Judson and the Equine program. I can't wait to see some (hopefully all) of them here in the next couple of years.
Equine Preview day was also a great opportunity for us, the current JC equestrian students. It gave us the opportunity to work on some of our riding skills by putting the performance together. Another benefit of this was that it gave us a break from the normal pre-show season routine. Not to mention getting to meet all of the super COOL girls who came out to learn about what we do. I must say we were also pretty proud to get to show off our fantastic NEW facility. (I plan to provide you, my amazing readers with a virtual tour of this facility, as soon as I find someone who will let me use their camera)
If you were unable to attend Equine preview day and have questions about our Equine Program or would just like some more information, please let me know. That goes for anyone who came too; I would love to answer any questions you still have about our program or Judson in general.
For those of you who did come, I hope you enjoyed it and can't wait to see you again soon!
