At ATOME we're home to An AEL team, UML IHSA, & Weekend Warriors. Accommodations for all riders in all interests!
1st Grade - Adults
Our AEL team competes within the Athletic Equestrian League in New England. Its a fun laid back atmosphere from 1st grade through adult riders. Each show consists of 3 phases: Flat, over fences, and practicum.
Flat rides: You pull a horses name out of a hat and compete in a traditional hunters flat class.
Over fences: A course any height from walk trot groud poles to 2’6. Each course specifies a patter and an order of gaits to each fence. You ride the same horse as on the flat immediately after.
Practicum: A short verbal horsemanship test. This quizzes riders on different aspects of practical horse care and knowledge such as breeds, vital signs, and training aides.
Our close knit team often practices for 2 hours Saturday nights and competes a few times throughout the school year. Our team often goes to mcdonalds after practice every weekend and carpools to every show together. For more information About AEL go to: https://www.athleticequestrian.com
UML Equestrian IHSA Team
As of fall 2019, ATOME became home to UMASS Lowell’s Hunt Seat Club equestrian team. They compete in IHSA in the hunter jumpers as a part of Zone 1 Region 4. Their team competed with 11 members registered for the 20-21 season. They often carpool to group lessons from their campus in Lowell to ATOME in Pepperell.
