Following holiday vespers and banquet, the whole school community makes their way to the barn to watch our annual holiday ride. The equestrian team will perform a drill team exercise in costume, with music, and our Acapella group, The Grapes, will perform a few holiday favorites. There’s always hot cocoa, cider, and candy to finish the night before we leave campus for winter break.
Every spring, during Reunion Weekend, our equestrian alumnae are invited to the barn to learn about the equestrian program as it is today and participate in a lesson or trail ride using our top school horses.
Preceding commencement, graduating seniors will have the opportunity to do a riding demonstration for our school in the front lawn of Beaver Brook, our main academic building. Our riding staff will set up a course of our finest Ethel Walker jumps and seniors can express themselves in their choice of music to be played during their course as they complete their final ride on campus.
