UofA Equestrian going to Nationals

Posted: Updated:

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - The University Of Arizona Equestrian Team is going to Nationals! The U of A Equestrian Team competes with the  Intercollegiate Horse Show Association.  IHSA is an organization that encompasses 37 Regions in 8 Zones with almost 400 member colleges in 45 states and Canada – representing more than 9000 riders in both Hunter Seat Equitation, Western Horsemanship, and Reining. In 1999 the original organization was dissolved and IHSA Inc was incorporated as a non-profit organization.

Full-time undergraduate students of member colleges or alumni who competed in the IHSA as undergraduates are eligible to compete. Riders qualify for the National Championship Horse Show (Nationals) through a point system. During the year, contestants accumulate points at local shows to qualify for the Regional Finals in their respective divisions. The top two riders in each class of the Regional Finals move forward to the Zone Finals. The top two competitors in each class at Zones qualify for Nationals.

This year we have 3 members who have qualified in the western events: Stephanie Norton and Brook Grobosky will be competing in Horsemanship and Mickey Bagley will be competing in Reining. This will be the first time to nationals for all 3 riders.

The IHSA National Championships will be on May 1-4, 2014 at Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
