Team Philosophy

As a student-athlete at Goucher College and a member of an elite riding team, we expect you to embrace the highest standard of horsemanship and sportsmanship to protect the integrity of the sport and the spirit of intercollegiate competition. Team members strive to develop personal character, dedication, and cooperative learning, along with a sense of personal progress and accomplishment. To support this effort and to be a viable team member, we expect student-athletes to uphold the following standards:

-Take personal responsibility for your conduct and behavior and represent Goucher College in a positive manner.

-Enroll in a minimum of 12 credits each semester and attend class regularly to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.00 (1.8 for second-semester freshmen) to be eligible to participate.

-Pledge full participation in all varsity riding team-sanctioned events including practices, contests, meetings, related activities and fundraisers.
