William Woods Equestrian Alumni Reunion

Follow us on Facebook for live updates and more!

Join us for the 2nd Annual Equestrian Alumni Reunion!

Dear EQS Alumni,

Last year we had a wonderful turnout for our Inaugural Equestrian Alumni Weekend (before the pandemic) and were thrilled to see so many friendly and familiar faces!

This year, the coronavirus has given us new challenges, but we aren’t losing momentum! Join us for the 2nd Annual Equestrian Alumni Reunion – all online. With no airline tickets, no rental cars or shuttles, no hotel costs... It is hopefully within reach for all our alumni to take part and participate via multiple virtual gatherings!

Once again, Laura Ward has designed an amazing t-shirt for this unique experience. Registration is $40 and includes the t-shirt and some other goodies, plus shipping materials and postage. Feel free to register for as many or as few online events as you wish; and come and go as you please! The events themselves are free!

We hope to see you soon!
