May 07, 2020

Friends and family of Pitt Eq,


We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of those who supported our 2020 fundraising campaign this year. Through your generosity, we were able to raise $4,046! This is really incredible for a club of our size! This has been our most successful fundraising campaign to date, and we hope to continue with projects like this in following years.


Because of your kindness, we will be able to offset many expenses that come with showing, buying new equipment, and covering more training fees. Although our Spring season was cut short, the money raised will be used in upcoming semesters.


Again, we cannot emphasize enough how grateful we are to our donors and individuals who helped support us by promoting and sharing our campaign. Being able to continue riding and participating in a sport that we love in college is truly a blessing, and we sincerely thank the amazing people in our lives that allow us to do so.



9 Days Left and THANK YOU!

Friends and Family of Pitt Eq,


Happy Wednesday, everyone! First off all, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of our donors. We are truly so appreciative of your generosity. This is our first time doing an EngagePitt project, and through your help the project has been quite the success as we have now raised $4046! Second, we would like to apologize for not providing more frequent updates during our project. As you are all probably well aware, Pitt made the decision to make all classes digital. Therefore, we appreciate your patience with us as our members deal with this transition. 


Due to the current public health considerations, IHSA has cancelled all remaining competitions for the rest of the spring semester. We are obviously very upset by this news, however, we understand and respect the necessity of this decision. Although our 2019-2020 season is coming to a close, we hope to maintain the same success at our competitions in the 2020-2021 season. And most importantly, we feel it is essential to remember to stick together during these difficult times. The lifelong friendships and connections that have been forged by Pitt Eq are so treasured right now. Again, we would like to thank you for your support and ensure that your generous contributions not only goes to riding and competitions, but friendships and love among teammates. 


Any money that has been raised thus far via the EngagePitt project will be reserved for the 2020-2021 academic year. We appreciate your kindness and are looking forward to coming back even stronger in the future!


Thank you and H2P!


THANK YOU- what a great start!

Hello friends + family of Pitt Eq,


We cannot express how thankful we are for your incredible generosity! Our first weekend of Engage was so successful because of you and your kindness. Thanks to you, we have raised $3,127. That is pretty awesome, if you ask us! Although we have reached our initial goal, you know that the Club Equestrian team is made up of passionate, hard-working individuals who are always looking to take things to the next level. Therefore, we are raising our fundraising goal to see if we can reach $4500! If we were able to save this much money, we could potentially cover show costs for members, buy new team swag, buy lots of show clothes for team use, and much, much more! With regionals only 3 weeks away, having this money saved up would put the team in a more safe financial standing.


Your generous contributions keep riders, like freshman Erin O’Callahan (pictured here with her 2 first place ribbons), in the show ring where they can show their stuff and earn those blues! Again, thank you so much for your kindness and consideration in donating. We wouldn’t be where we are without you and your endless support!


Thank you and H2P!

Choose a giving level


Puddle Jumper

In the puddle jumper division, jumps are usually set at 2’6”.This contribution would help the team pay for over half of an entry fee for a class for one of our riders at an IHSA show. Thank you so much for your contribution!


A/O Jumper

In the amateur/owner division, riders should expect to soar over jumps that are up to 1.30m in height! This comes out to around 50 inches. A contribution of this size would cover one of our member's riding lessons, as well as transportation out to the barn. Thank you for your support!


Pony Jumper

In the pony jumper division, riders need to be prepared to pilot their ponies over fences that are set to at least 1.00m in height! A donation of this size would cover the cost of a new pair of show pants for one of our members. Thank you for your generous contribution!


Six Bar

In the Six Bar and Puissance divisions, professional show jumpers must guide their horses over jumps that can exceed 2 meters in height! Did you know that the world record for the highest jump cleared by a horse was set by Huaso and his rider, Alberto Larraguibel in 1949? Huaso and Alberto cleared a fence that was 2.49m! Help Pitt Eq soar to record setting heights. By making a contribution of this size, we would be able to buy a new pair of riding boots for one of our members. Thank you so much!


Speed Class

In this division, speed and accuracy are important, as there is only one round for riders and horses to showcase their stuff. If you knock down a rail, four seconds are added to your time, and whoever has the fastest time wins. Keeping all of this in mind, riders still need to be able to conquer jumps that are 1.500m in height or more! A contribution of this size would cover lodging and transportation to our regional competition. Thanks so much for your amazing support!


Grand Prix

The Grand Prix is where the most talented riders and horses go head to head (and hoof to hoof). The most prestigious event of the show with the highest jumps requires great skill and attention to detail. A contribution of this size would pay for a weekend show that we must host every year, which involves expenses like travel, lodging, judge’s fees, training fees, and more! Thank you so much for your incredibly generous contribution!
