The Virginia Riding Team is an equestrian club sports team at the University of Virginia, competing in Zone 4, Region 2 of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. The equestrian team seeks riders of any and all levels, from those who have never ridden to Grand Prix riders. Team members take hunt seat equitation lessons at The Barracks, a privately owned barn in Charlottesville, and once approved by an instructor are able to free ride.
