McGill Association of Responsible Equestrian Students (MARES)

McGill Equestrian was founded in Fall 2010 after we realized we missed our horses while at school. The team started competing with the Ontario University Equestrian Association in winter 2011 and hasn’t stopped since! McGill Equestrian prides itself on its unique dynamic: a team that not only bonds over competing on the OUEA circuit, but is also close friends beyond the show ring. All of the McGill riders share a special bond!
