Diamond D Cowgirls 
Drill Team Auditions

Join the Diamond D Cowgirls National Champion Drill Team! With teams for all ages and disciplines, you can audition for the Jr. JV, JV, Varsity, Rusty Spurs or Professional Drill Team.

Riders auditioning for the Jr. JV, JV, Varsity or Rusty Spurs teams may ride their own horse or audition with a Dabney Lesson Horse. Dabney horses will be provided for auditions, practices and performances for these teams as needed. 

Professional Team members must provide their own horse and independently be able to transport themselves and horse to rodeos and events. As we want all members to enjoy this spectacular sport, we do not expect members to transport other team members horses. 

Riders will receive a basic and short drill pattern (8 maneuvers) to perform with three other riders. Each group will have time to practice with their group walking through the pattern on foot and then riding through the pattern in the arena before they audition.
