Go All In for Equestrian!
The Santa Clara University Equestrian Team consists of both competing and non-competing members riding in Hunt Seat Equitation. Our program competes in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. IHSA competitions are based on catch riding, where riders draw a horse that has been provided from the hosting school. The IHSA competition style promotes riders from all skill levels, to compete individually and as teams at regional, zone, and national levels. The team travels to schools within the Zone 8 Region 1 area for competition. Other schools within our region include Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo, Cal State - Monterey Bay, Stanford University, Sonoma State University, University of California at Berkeley, University of California at Davis, University of California at Santa Cruz, and University of Nevada at Reno.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here on the Equestrian team for the friends I’ve made and the leadership experience I’ve gained. Connecting with the team was seamless given that we all have a common passion and I’ve made some great friends over the past year and a half! In addition, I’ve gained great leadership experience by working with the team and I can’t wait to learn more!”
