The Dowling Equestrian Team will be hosting its Intercollegiate Horse Show on November 7, 2010. The show starts promptly at 9:00 am and will take place at our home barn, Islandia Farms (on Old Nichols Road in Islandia). The team will compete against seven other universities and colleges: St. Joseph’s, Stony Brook, CW Post, Hofstra, Nassau, Columbia, and NYU.
The classes, Flat and Over Fences, are broken down into Novice, Intermediate, Open and Alumni. Less experienced riders compete in Walk-Trot and Advanced Walk-Trot-Cantor. Admittance for spectators is free, so please come support the Dowling Equestrian Team.
