At tryouts, Coach Missy Jo will assess your riding abilities and help place you in the correct IHSA division per IHSA guidelines. Our show team consists of approximately twenty-five western riders and twenty-five hunt seat riders, while our leisure team is not limited. Everyone is guaranteed a spot on the leisure team. Given that IHSA competition requires a full team across divisions, Coach Missy Jo will select riders with all levels of experience for the show team (riders with no experience to advanced riders). Riders that are not immediately on the show team are still expected to act as a member of the Equestrian team and participate in weekly riding lessons at Saddle Lake. The show team is subject to change each quarter. We need all levels of riding for our team and no experience is necessary. Please do not get discouraged if you are a beginner. Everyone should tryout!
We strongly recommend that you follow a team member from main campus or car pool with us. We are happy to assist you. Transportation is available from main campus to Saddle Lake Equestrian Center for tryouts. After filling out the form to the left, you will be contacted with more information about transportation for tryouts.
All prospective members should arrive ready to ride and dressed in appropriate ridding attire (English -helmet, breaches, half chaps, or tall boots / Western – helmet, jeans, and riding boots). Inexperience riders should dress in jeans and hard soled shoes or boots.
