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 a variety of different teams both competition and non competition teams. Learn more about each team here: Diamond D Cowgirl Teams

Riders auditioning for Competitition and Adult tems 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.  

Riders auditioning for Non Competition teams will ride in groups of 4-6 riders together in the arena and be asked to perfom individual specific skills needed in a drill team setting such as riding the rail consistetly, straight lines off the rail, disengaging the hindquarter, sidepassing etc. 

*All audition results will be final based on score calculation and careful discussion between the judges. With over 12 years of experience riding and coaching drill teams of all levels, please trust that we are taking into consideration many elements of each riders abilities and skills to place them on a team that we feel they will best succeed with confidence and safety for the entire team. If you are not satisfied with the results of your riders placing, you have 24 hours to decline the position after the results have been sent out.

*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. 
Audition Fee: $15 per rider
