Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Team

The University of New Hampshire is a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) and competes in the competitive Zone I, Region 2, against other schools from the northeast. IHSA is a unique form of team equestrian competition in which each competitor draws a horse provided by the host school before their ride; no schooling or warm-up of that horse by the rider is allowed. IHSA tests each rider’s ability to quickly and accurately assess their mount and ride it to the best of their ability. Teams are comprised of riders from walk-trot up to the Medal/Maclay level. Each score counts equally.

Riders also accrue individual points and may qualify to compete at the Regional and Zone Championships.

Tryouts for UNH IHSA are held once per year at the beginning of the Fall semester. Membership is open to full-time undergraduate students at the University of New Hampshire or the Thompson School of Applied Science. Riders must be enrolled in ANSC 402 (Horsemanship) or have taken the course at least twice previously to be eligible to try out. Incoming freshmen who are interested in trying out for the team are strongly encouraged to enroll in the earliest orientation session possible to increase their chances of getting a slot in ANSC 402 during their first semester.

The UNH Equestrian Team is entirely self-funded, and members are required to complete fundraising obligations for each semester. Also, riders must pay to join the IHSA each academic year.
