IHSA Results


The University of Findlay's western team traveled to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to compete in the Interc​ollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) National Championships on May 2-5.  Team coaches are Cindy Morehead, Clark Bradley and Emily Cramer, with graduate assistant Andrew Wolf.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, IHSA provides collegiate riders of various skills the opportunity to compete individually and as teams in equestrian competition.  It was founded on the principle that any college student should be able to participate in horse shows regardless of his or her riding ability or financial status.  More than 8,300 students and 370 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada compete in IHSA events.

UF's western and English teams were both National Champions in 2001.  This is the only time that both teams from one school have won together.  The western team was National Champion in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010.
