Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Western

As a member of Findlay's IHSA team, students learn teamwork, time management and how to be successful riders who produce winning rides. Although the IHSA requires an ample amount of hard work and commitment, the rewards are great and many. In addition to regional, zone and national championships, we have between seven and ten regional qualifying shows each year.
