The mission of the IHSA is to provide equestrian competition for all college and university students regardless of riding level, gender, race, sexual orientation or financial status. The IHSA is dedicated to promoting sportsmanship, horsemanship and academic excellence. IHSA welcomes beginners through advanced riders in the Hunter and Western disciplines to compete with and against each other. IHSA eliminates the expenses of horse ownership. Horses are furnished by host colleges and are chosen by drawing lots. The use of personal tack is not allowed and schooling is not permitted. The Format fairly tests the horsemanship of the athletes. Divisions range from Beginner to the Open Division for the more experienced riders.
The next IHSA competition will be on February 5 and 6, 2022.
