The Acadia Equestrian Team (or AET) is an inclusive club of students at Acadia University  in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada. While initial planning for an equestrian club began in the winter/spring of 2004, it became an active club in the 2004/2005 school year. This year (2012/2013), we have 90+ people on our roster, with 25 members in weekly lessons and 12 members competing within the Atlantic Intercollegiate Equestrian League.

Our team is a club member of the Acadia Students' Union. It is open to all Acadia students interested in learning more about horses and developing their riding skills, regardless of experience or background. Our members range in experience from first timers to the Grand Prix jumper and Young Riders dressage level, with many in between.

Our competitive team was the first in Atlantic Canada to become a member of and compete with the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. We are now one of the founding schools involved in the formation of our own league: the Atlantic Intercollegiate Equestrian League.  The current universities involved in the league are Acadia,  Dalhousie, St Mary's, Nova Scotia Agricultural College and St. Francis Xavier.
