Experience

Jumping

At Culver Academies, we develop our Hunter and Jumper riders through Varsity and Junior Varsity Jumping Teams. Each team member receives two small group lessons per week and one day of riding on their own. The teams are unique in that they are a full academic year sport. The Jumping Teams compete at both schooling shows and IEA recognized shows in the Midwest.
