ESHS Equestrian

Reigning Phoenix has been proud to host the ESHS Equestrian Club these last few years!

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end of Reigning Phoenix Equestrian’s hosting of the Elizabeth Seton Equestrian Club following the 2022-2023 academic year. Since reviving the club, we have seen many excellent young women take every opportunity, absorb the education provided, form bonds, strengthen teamwork and develop leadership skills, and grow to be outstanding knowledgeable equestrians. From costume contest competitions to jousting to horse swims to trail rides, we have had countless adventures both at home and abroad with the more experienced girls. The club has focused on developing well-rounded equestrians, not just riders. But like all things, chapters must come to an end.

The equestrian club has been supported by several wonderful older horses, all of whom are starting to slow down a bit. Looking forward towards the longevity and welfare of the horses, it has been decided to lighten their responsibilities of the ESHS Equestrian Club. Reigning Phoenix will be glad to continue being a resource for the club, should they reach out for guidance moving forward, but will no longer be hosting club barn sessions following the 2022-2023 academic year.

I wish the ESHS Equestrian Club well and encourage them to stay in touch. Should any aspiring young equestrian wish to become more involved in the equine world separate from what the club offers, they are more than welcome to reach out directly and discussions may be had.

ESHS 2020 Halloween Costume Contest Winner

Class of 2014 alumna, Jenna S. Nuth has revived the Seton Equestrian Club through sponsoring the more expensive side of the equation: providing horses, tack, and coaching. Nuth owns several horses under Reigning Phoenix Equestrian as a small, private farm. All of RPE’s horses have been used in schooling programs, competitions, and the prior Seton Equestrian Club’s program. The sponsorship will be returning to a past structure when hosted at Celtic Acres Farm (2010-2014) where rides are split up with beginners riding first and more experienced riders riding last in order to accommodate the limited number of horses available. This system has worked extremely well from past experience as well as also helped to truly bring the team together in helping each other grow and learn in the world of horses.

ESHS Equestrian Club Details

Barn sessions will be scheduled every month and will be structured with all riders (beginners, intermediate, and advanced riders) attending and working with the horses. Note that barn sessions will range from ground work and lessons to mounted work and lessons alongside potential field trips and demonstrations. The barn sessions will be expecting members to participate in the club's virtual meeting learning topics so as to gain as much exposure and preparation as possible. (NOTE that the club may still hold educational sessions even in the event of rain).

2022-2023 Academic Year

The 2022-2023 Academic Year will start with the school year in September 2022. The Club Sessions will be structured with the entire club so that the intermediate and advanced riders will help RPE coach and teach the beginner group in a team effort the basics of horseback riding. The club will submit attendance sheets prior to each club and training session so that RPE can appropriately prepare lesson material for the expected riders. RPE has a tentative schedule of educational and training goals for each group throughout the year. All riders are required to have their own riding-approved helmet.

Club Sessions are from 10 AM until 1 PM
Times may change later with winter weather.
