The Equestrian Team is a competitive riding team that offers a unique type of western competition through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA). You do not need your own horse or tack to be on the Equestrian Team. Plus there are divisions that allow beginners up to open riders compete on the team. Riders practice and compete the entire school year and attend 4-6 shows per semester. They compete in Horsemanship and Reining and earn points for every placing, working towards qualification for higher levels of competition. The Equestrian Team is open to both women and men riders. The team is made up of students interested in developing their riding skills and competing at a high level of showing. Scholarships are available on a competitive basis.
