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 Pre JV, JV, Varsity, Rusty Spurs, Legacy or Professional Drill Team.

Riders auditioning for the Pre JV, JV, Varsity,  Rusty Spurs or Legacy 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 to five 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.  


*Please note that the audition schedule is set up differently than in the past so pay close attention to the time you should arrive for the highest level team in which you are auditioning.
