STARTING YOUR OWN
A team can be formed with as few as 4
riders or more than 20. A team with 12 to 16 riders is an average
size team while many only have 6 or 8 riders. There has recently been
competitions featuring Quad teams (four riders) and with a bit of imagination
some very entertaining choreography is possible for this small sized team
A team can use any kind of theme
or riding discipline (western or english) however you most usually see western
teams riding at rodeo and western saddle club events. The male counterpart
to Ladies Mounted Drill Team is the Men's Posse frequently seen in parades.
Recently there has been great interest in coed drill teams, something that
was almost never seen in years past.
You need not be an expert. Novice
and advanced riders alike can enjoy the many benefits of the drill team
experience. Some of these are:
- Improved communication between
horse and rider
- Improved riding skills
- Better discipline of yourself and
- An increased awareness and understanding
of proper timing
- Cooperation and team work
