IHSA Horseshow @ Bridgewater College on Saturday
The Radford Redcoats equestrian team has a long history at RU. The riding team was the first sport to be offered by the school in 1938. Today the Redcoats is a Sports Club comprised of approximately 25 members, about half of whom compete at intercollegiate horse shows. Radford competes in one of the toughest regions in the country, comprised of Randolph College, Hollins University, University of Virginia, Bridgewater College, Lynchburg College, Longwood University, James Madison University, Sweet Briar College, Washington and Lee, Mary Baldwin College, and Roanoke College. Our goal is to represent our university as best we can through equestrian competition, community service, and other group activities.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to give each member horsemanship skills as well as riding skills to all levels of riders. We are a close knit team who show and ride together on a regular basis. Each member is provided with responsibility, coordination, trust, and integrity. We are currently seeking and accepting new members, and we welcome everyone who is interested and dedicated.
