Mara Bunderson

Hello, I'm a junior from Sun Prairie, WI. I'm majoring in accounting with a certificate in Spanish and this year I'll be team president. I started riding about a year and a half ago when I joined the team, and it's been the absolute highlight of college for me. As the team president, I'm in charge of handling team business. If you or anyone you know is interested in trying out, don't hesitate to contact me! You can either reach out to the team's Instagram @badgerequestrian, or email me at

Grace Sandretti

I'm a junior from Washington, DC and am at UW-Madison to study International Studies, specifically global security; and Political Science. As captain of the team, I am responsible for the well-being of each rider. It is my job to keep accountability of the team and support the riders and horses in any and every way that I can, outside or inside the ring.

I have been riding for as long as I can remember, and I've always had a deep love for horses. I believe that every moment that we have with horses, in and out of the saddle, is a blessing. Horses heal and I love sharing my love of this sport with others!

If you have questions about the team or tryouts, you can reach Mara and myself by emailing!

Kat Baker | Secretary

Hi! I'm a senior from Sheboygan, WI double majoring in Life Sciences Communication and Social Welfare with certificates in Disability Rights & Services and Public Policy. I've been riding for about 13 years, and being able to ride competitively while I'm in college is a long-time dream come true! As Show Chair Secretary, I handle the bulk of the paperwork that comes with hosting our home show. I also ensure IHSA compliance of our show and handle things like coordinating an EMT and ordering ribbons & awards for riders.

Emma Ratway

Hi! I'm a senior from Hartland, WI majoring in Conservation Biology and Spanish with certificates in Public Policy and French. As a fundraising chair, I help find ways to boost our funding and spread awareness of the team! I've always loved animals--my aunt had horses and I did riding camps when I was little, and now I work for an equine therapy barn. I wish I could've found the equestrian team earlier in my time in college but I'm glad to get involved with the exec board!

Hi! I'm a senior from Ottawa, WI double majoring in Psychology and Social Welfare. I've been riding since I was a little girl and have shown hunter/jumper even before joining the team. I joined the team in spring of my sophomore year, and as a social chair I work with my partner to coordinate social events for team bonding!
