Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team

"Lauren has given our talented riders the skills to be thoughtful and confident in the ring. She instills the importance of sportsmanship, horsemanship and teamwork in all of her students and does a great job motivating the team. Lauren's commitment to NVET is obvious and it shines through in all of her students." -- Emma Bernstein- Team Captain

The Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team is Harmony Horse Stables’ competition team that shows throughout the school year from Sept-May. Riders on the NVET team compete in the Athletic Equestrian League (AEL). This competitive organization focuses on a rider’s ability to exhibit quality equitation on the flat and over fences while riding unfamiliar horses.

The team is a fantastic way for riders to experience the excitement of traveling to horse shows without the larger financial commitments of traditional showing. Riders develop their confidence through successfully riding the horses that the host barn provides.

Team members earn points for themselves to qualify to Regionals, Zones, and Nationals as well as earning points for the team to qualify as a whole.

If you have not competed as an equitation rider before, no problem! We strongly believe that any rider can be successful on the Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team, regardless of the discipline they regularly ride in. Contact us today to find out how you can make the transition to the Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team!

"Kathryn always finds creative and fun ways to stimulate her riders. She is really skilled at teaching riders to ride any horse, in any situation. Kathryn not only helped me to become a more competitve rider, but also inspired me to work harder and chase my passion." --Lauren Powtak
