Wisconsin Hoofers
HOOFIN' TO THE FUTURE

In 1931, Harold C. Bradley, Porter Butts, and a small group of students established the Wisconsin Hoofers. Eight decades later, as one of the largest and most active collegiate outdoor recreation programs in the country, Hoofers are looking to the future and need your help in the following areas:

  1. Enhancing the quality the lakefront sailing piers. Your support will help us to improve the safety, accessibility, and utility of the sailing piers and help ensure that the next generation of Hoofers have well-functioning equipment to hone their skills in sailing.
  2. Competitive Team Support. The Sailing, Equestrian, and Alpine competitive teams have become so successful that it is now the norm for each of these teams to compete at and win in their respective regional and national competitions. Your support will allow our Hoofer-affiliated athletes to continue in their competition against other high-caliber athletes.
  3. Field Leader Training. As a result of the recent risk assessment done for each of the six Hoofer Clubs, we are working toward creating a new Hoofer field leader training program.  Our goal is to provide all trip leaders with the necessary training to safely and proficiently lead trips according to the type of trip and level of risk. Your support will enable student trip leaders to obtain necessary field safety and risk management training as well as activity-specific certifications at a reasonable fee.
