Dear Parent and/or Youth Member,

You no longer have to be a record setting quarterback or captain of the cheerleading team to earn a junior high or high school varsity letter. Join the US Equestrian Lettering program to be recognized for your dedication to the equestrian sport!

As you will see from the quotes below, this program has been life changing for those who have participated:

“Your Program inspired my daughter to strive in her sport of choice. Her peers never took her sport seriously until she was awarded a varsity letter from her high school due to your program. She is now moving up to compete in the inter-collegiate dressage arena and I believe you played a big part in that, as well. I hope this program continues to be available to all of those little girls (and boys) with the love to ride and the heart to compete. Thank you for such an amazing program!”

“I just want to say I really appreciate the existence of this program. Nowadays colleges definitely want to see that kids participated in a “serious” or dedicated activity during their high school years. With riding, it can be hard to show the level of commitment—i.e., that they did more than just dabble in an occasional trail ride. This provides a concrete way to present riding as a serious sport equivalent to more traditional sports like soccer or tennis. Thank you for having this program!”
