Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the club?

The Hoofer Riding Club is part of the WI Union, so all Club members must first become Union members. UW students are automatically Union Members during their time at the University. UW Faculty and Staff, as well as community members, must purchase a Union Membership. This can be done online at www.union.wisc.edu. Union membership costs $50 per year until $300 is reached, and then you are considered a Lifetime Union Member.

How do I get started with lessons?

The Hoofer Riding Club lesson program is back! We are able to offer dressage lessons to a limited number of riders thanks to the generosity of Pen Bryn Farm. Lessons are not currently available to beginners, but we hope to expand our program to riders of all levels soon. Contact President Chloe Roberts at ridingpresident@hoofers.org if you are interested!
