Riding with an equestrian drill team is a fast growing sport throughout the nation and teams have opportunities to ride in rodeos, perform at expos or compete against each other through out the nation, with many competitions being held in TX and OK. It is also a very demanding sport both on the horse and the rider with quick turns, close manuvers, and complicated routines. Teams practice all year long to perform or compete in a 10 minute routine for the crowd. If you would like further information or would like to book TX Four Step for your next event please contact June Scripps @ 325-429-6306 or s4j@hctc.net.
