Michigan State University




We are a group of Michigan State students who share a love for dressage. This club is for all Michigan State students interested in competing in dressage or even just learning how to ride. We compete against other schools at all levels in intercollegiate competition.


This club represents the Michigan State University Department of Animal Science and the Michigan State University Horseman's Association. We were founded in 2006 by Erin Tans and the club continues to develop into a dynamic community of unique students. 


Dressage education will always be our main cornerstone, giving members opportunities to learn through clinics, seminars, and lessons with our coach, Ruth Hill-Schorsch. Ruth's barn, Stapleton Farm, is located in Leslie, MI. Lessons are available for both club and competing team members. For more information, visit
