Saddle Gals and Guys Drill Team

Saddle Gals and Guys Drill Team The Drill Team has performed since 1995 as a recreational and exhibition team that performs in parades, and fairs to demonstrate precision riding. The Team accepts any rider 9 years of age or older, capable of controlling his/her horse at all times.

“Drilling” gives the horse and rider a challenging, yet non-competitive, opportunity to develop equitation skills and network with other horse enthusiasts in a low-pressure environment. Series of movements are combined into choreographed drill routines performed to music. The drill routines performed by the Team include maneuvers such as the swinging gate, wagon wheel, ripping the zipper, four-way box, the ladder and the sweep. Control and precision timing are necessary to prevent collisions of horses and riders.

If anyone who has a horse or pony that tends to founder, I have a large bucket of Remission that I no longer have any use for. It's yours for the asking. Let me know if you want it. It worked well keeping our pony from foundering for over 2 years of use.
The drill team is getting ready for the Howard County Fair this Thursday night at 6:30. Looking good.
