In-Kind Support

In 1931, Harold C. Bradley, Porter Butts, and a small group of students established the Wisconsin Hoofers. Eight decades later, as one of the largest and most active collegiate outdoor recreation programs in the country, Hoofers continues to offer outdoor recreation activities and bond new communities around the outdoors. Your generous in-kind support helps Hoofers to continue to learn, explore, and bond through recreation. In-kind support can be the donation of equipment (upon approval/acceptance of Wisconsin Hoofers), hospitality (offering housing for traveling Hoofers), use of property/equipment, services, and more.

Donors who support Hoofers with an in-kind gift of $500 or more (in value) will be inducted into the Harold C. Bradley Society. To learn more about giving levels, click HERE.

The Hoofer Riding Club is a self supporting student led organization. We achieve most of our funding through lessons, clinics, shows, fundraising and through the generosity of our donors.

  • Breeches (any size, any color)
  • Tall boots (any size, any color)
  • Weekend horse use for IHSA Team hosted show (Oct. 22-24)

      • Comfortable in an English saddle
      • Show flat or over fences
