Open Gate Equestrian Team
Open Gate Equestrian Team was formed in November of 2012. The team is based at Open Gate Ranch in New Ringgold, Pennsylvania. Our riders represent all age groups. We all enjoy the teamwork and dedication necessary to perfect a drill or show. Working within a group helps foster self-esteem and responsibility. We build respect for each other and our horses as we work to become polished performers. It is also a fun way to improve horsemanship skills.
Each member is expected to continue learning and to improve their riding/driving skills by taking lessons and working continually with their horse. In this way we get to know our horses better and become partners. As a faith-based team, we foster Christian ideals among our team members, families, and the community.
We have performed at the PA Farm Show as part of the Equine Showcase for the last two years.
Participation in parades in our area.
We are always looking for new members, all are welcome to tryout. Practices are held on a Friday evening at 7 PM.
