The Hunt Seat Equestrian Club at NC State is a student-run club comprised of full-time, undergraduate students at NC State, allowing them to compete and participate in equestrian activities during school through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association in Zone 4, Region 3. We also welcome non-competing members to join our club and participate in many of the activities we plan throughout the year.
The IHSA promotes competition for riders of all skill levels, who compete individually and as teams at regional, zone, and national levels. The association was founded on the principle that any college student should be able to participate in horse shows regardless of his or her financial status or riding level. Emphasis is on learning, sportsmanship, and fun. Competition plays a role but the students’ enthusiasm and team spirit are the major factors. The objective of IHSA competition is to offer the opportunity to riders in their first years of riding as well as to students with show experience. Eliminating the expense of shipping or even owning horses puts IHSA competitions within reach of many who would otherwise miss the equestrian experience.
