The Cedar Crest
College Club Equestrian Team was founded in 1993. The team is a member of
the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, Zone 3, Region 4. The team is
comprised of riders of all levels. The club has riders that have never shown
before and riders that have an abundance of experience. Everyone is welcome
The team has approximately 12 riders that all show at
different levels and classes. The coach of the team will place the riders
into one of six divisions, beginner walk-trot to open classes, which are
for more advanced riders. Riders try to take one lesson per show and generally
car pool to the farm.
The equestrian team competes in 8 to 10 shows per year.
At each show, the horses are provided and the riders and horses are paired
at the beginning of the show by lottery (horse draw). This levels the playing
field for all of the riders. One rider in each division is chosen by the
coach as the “point rider,” the one whose points count in the team score.
The team with the highest score at the end of the show wins.
Individual riders who score high can receive an invitation
to compete at the regional finals. The top three winners from that competition
go on to the zone finals. From there, the top 2 riders progress to the national
championships held each year in May. Cedar Crest College has been fortunate
and has had riders compete in Regionals for several years and have sent
a few to the National Competition.
