Our Equestrian Team is one of the best in the region, with a long history of success at intercollegiate competition in Hunter Seat, Western Horsemanship, Reining and Dressage. The team offers the chance to compete in IHSA and IDA sanctioned events. Everyone, from the least to the most experienced rider, has an opportunity to compete and excel. Our riders have won twelve individual National Championships (in IHSA and IDA) to date.
The College’s 240-acre Equine Education Center houses a herd of 70 horses, including Thoroughbreds, Warmbloods and Quarter Horses, as well as numerous other breeds. The large heated indoor arena, multiple outdoor riding areas, and turn-out paddocks provide ample space for the various activities that students pursue. The facility offers a premier educational environment that features a network-wired classroom. The Equine Center has been proud to host the National Championships for the IHSA and the IDA three times.
