Guelph OCEA Team
Old Orchard Farm is the home barn of the University of Guelph OCEA Team and University of Guelph Equestrian Club Hunter Jumper lesson program. Linda has been involved in the U of G Equestrian Club since its initial inception in the mid 1990’s. When the club got back together in the early 2000’s Linda traveled with the team as coach of the IHSA team, which transitioned to the OCEA team at the time of it inception in 2004. Old Orchard Farm hosts 2-3 OCEA shows annually and donates horses to many others, having had 3 horses named OCEA horse of the year and a few staff members including Linda named as Supporter of the Year. If you are interested in riding with the Guelph OCEA team or riding as part of the club you can visit their Facebook page or website. If you are interested in learning more about the OCEA itself please read up on it on their official website. Involvement in the OCEA horse shows is a great and fun way for high school students to earn their volunteer hours. Please contact Linda for more information on volunteering.
