Horse Club

The SDSU Horse Club works to promote the equine industry to SDSU students, the Brookings community and across the entire state of South Dakota. The club consists of approximately 25 active members who host a variety of activities both on and off the campus. Students are encouraged to become engaged with events such as trail rides, the Hobo Day float, Campus Ag Day, Equine Clinics and our annual Petting Zoo. All students are encouraged to join no matter what level of horse experience they have had in the past.

The Horse Club offers members ways to grow in leadership and service as members can serve as club officers and help run the club. The club is also active in community service, being engaged in projects such as Christmas Caroling and collecting items for the Food Shelf each year. Horse Club strives to make a difference by offering members as many opportunities to learn and grow within the equine industry.
