This year, the Middlebury Equestrian Team is working diligently to increase the financial accessibility of our club. Thanks to past donations, we are able to subsidize lesson fees for all riders and provide full scholarships for team riders who demonstrate need this year. As is exhibited by our growing waitlist, an increasing number of Middlebury students are taking interest in our program which we are very excited about - we enrolled sixteen new riders this semester! To best support our growing program, we want to prioritize broad accessibility. Our hope is that donations from this fundraiser will allow us to continue to increase accessibility by decreasing the financial burden that membership places on some of our riders. All donations that we receive through Proud to be a Panther will go towards increasing financial accessibility to riding.
