What We Do
The Drill Team not only performs in CAHNR and Department of Animal Science events, but also other University sponsored events as well. Each year the UConn Morgan Drill Team makes plans to perform in the University of Connecticut Homecoming Parade. This is an exciting experience for the riders as well as the horses. Not only is it an opportunity to participate in an important University event, but it is a chance to promote the UConn Drill Team and the entire Equestrian Program. In addition the UConn Morgan Drill Team has eagerly performed (and is available) as invited guests off campus for parades and various Morgan Horse Shows.
In 1989 the team performed in campus at the celebration of the 100 years of women at UConn. (Luckily that year we had all women on the team) The team also performed in Old Lyme, CT at the Whipperwill Farm to help promote lyme disease research and celebrate in the towns Bicentennial parade of the Morgan horse.
Due to the many activities at the UConn horse barn we have 1 1/2 hours per week to develop our demonstrations and introduce new Morgan’s to the team. The UConn Morgan Drill Team is proud of their coach, Kathy for continuing to volunteer her time and energy to train and support the team. We are honored to represent the University of Connecticut’s Morgan breeding program. Thank you for your encouragement and constant support. We hope you enjoy our website.
