Support our Aggie student-athletes this Give Day!

As a growing program (we just launched in 2018!), we are pursuing competitive success and an environment that prepares our student-athletes for success upon graduation.

Launching and operating a modern, Division I Equestrian Team takes significant resources in the first three years. The quality of equipment, recruiting, travel, training, and competitive results are all linked to the amount of resources we can dedicate to the program. A gift to the Equestrian Development Fund helps shape the future of our newest UC Davis sport and will help us compete at the highest levels.

To make Give Day even sweeter, we've challenged Men’s Water Polo, Swimming and Diving, and Track and Field to a competition to see who can get the most people to support them on this Give Day. The team with the most donors wins a $1,000 bonus for their annual budget!

Give Day is all about participation! Help us win our group challenge by making a gift of any size and spread the word to your friends! You can join in on Give Day by clicking the link above and sharing your love! Every Aggie Counts!
