We had a very successful 2017-2018 season. We are proud of our dedication and hard work over the last year and look forward to this season! To keep updated on our training and show results please like us on Facebook.
We compete at eight shows throughout the season as well as regionals at the end of each show season. Shows are an opportunity for the team to spend time together as well as to bring equestrians from all over New York state and Canada together. We show as part of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA). For more information on the history of IHSA and their rules and regulations please visit their website at www.ihsainc.com.

At the end of each show season, the riders who have pointed into higher divisions all compete at regionals, held at St. Lawrence University. The points are as follows:
