• Maryville College Equestrian Team

Maryville College Equestrian Team functions as a club sport at the College and participates in intercollegiate competition as a member of the (IHSA) Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, Zone 5, Region 1. The colleges and universities in this zone are: Belmont University, Hiwassee College, Maryville College, Middle Tennessee State University, Murray State University, Rhodes College, Tennessee Tech University, The University of Memphis, The University of the South, The University of Arkansas, The University of Tennessee – Knoxville, and Vanderbilt University.

IHSA competition is based on the level of the rider and includes beginner through open level of competition. Each member accumulates points toward the next level based on show results. Team points are earned through show points earned by the designated point rider at each level.

IHSA shows are different! At each show, the host institution provides most of the horses ridden in the show. Riders in their designated class draw the name of a horse at random and are expected to ride the horse without prior practice or schooling.
