For the first time since 2005, VES has launched an equestrian team with 12 riders who bring a breadth of experience from beginners to competitive hunter/jumpers. The team is coached by Caitlin Unterman, a seven-time regional champion hunter/jumper and zone finalist with more than seven years training experience, VES science teacher and owner of CULU Equestrian Training. The team rides out of the scenic Thistlewood Stables on nearly 100 acres in Goode, Virginia. Riders will compete in local and regional SWVHJA and BRHF shows, participate in clinics offered by local professionals and train in the cross country discipline. Ride on!
