Deer Park Equestrian Team

The 2019 season is ramping up for the Deer Park Equestrian team. Practices began this September and will continue, weather permitting, through to their events this spring. The team welcomes riders of all skill levels, and works with them to prepare for the regional and state events.  Competitions are done through the Washington High School Equestrian Team (WAHSET) program. Students on the equestrian team have the opportunity to participate in a variety of performance events, timed events, and team events.

The Deer Park team is a member of District 1, which is composed of area schools including: Cascade, Chelan, Cheney, Colville, Ephrata, Mead, Mt Spokane, Othello/Smokiam, and Wenatchee.  Last season, the Deer Park team was competitive in the district and state competition, including Andrea H. taking home a first place finish in Figure 8 at State with a time of 17.227.

Getting their horses to both practices and events can be costly and time consuming.  The dedicated team members make a major commitment to their team each season. In fact, it can cost $1,500 per member for competitions, making team and individual fundraising a must.  Their upcoming fundraising events, including a Chicken Fried Steak Dinner auction at Eagles, will be posted on the team’s Facebook page
