Welcome! We are Elon Dressage. An Equestrian Club Sport at Elon University. We are a competitive team that has a passion for riding and a love for horses.
The Dressage Club sport rides about 20 minutes away from Elon at our coach’s barn. Girls have individual lessons with our trainer. We are part of the International Dressage Association (IDA), which is an association that allows for teams in colleges to compete with each other. There are usually 2-3 shows a semester! We strive to keep a team feel and often meet together for team dinners or activities that allow us to bond and stay close!
