Introducing the MidWest Renegade Rebels

We are proud to announce the addition of a new adult drill team this year that we lovingly call the MidWest Renegade Rebels.

These adults are dedicated to having fun while riding, along with keeping precision in their drill. We are thrilled to include them in with our line up of drill teams and can’t wait to show them off this year.  Since they are new this year we don’t have many pictures, or performance videos for them yet.  Keep checking back as we go through the year for updates from their performances.

2015 Scholarship Awarded

The MidWest Renegades 2015 Scholarship award was recently awarded to Larissa Pietrzak.

Bev Vlahos, the Renegades team founder and manager commented on the award,

My goal in in designing the scholarship for the MidWest Renegades was to find someone who represented the word “team”.  The committee and I chose Larissa as our recipient because she not only displays enormous team spirit, but her whole life is dedicated to helping others be the best they can be. She has an incredibly kind heart, and steps into whatever role is asked of her without complaint. She continually encourages others in the team as she herself always gives 120%. I can think of no better person than Larissa Pietrzak to represent the MidWest Renegades Equestrian Drill Team, and to be our 2015 recipient of our scholarship funds.

Congratulations to Larissa, and a hearty thank you for her continuing contributions to the teams.
