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.
IHSA competition is based on the level of the rider and include beginner through the 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 all the horses ridden in the show. Riders in their designated class draw the name of a horse out of a hat and are expected to mount and ride the horse without prior practice or schooling.

News: Boot Camp
The Maryville College Equestrian Team (MCET) started off the 2016-2017 year with a week-long “Boot Camp”. Boot Camp is organized each year by the Captain and Co-Captain, this year Tiffany Bryant and Taylor Mundelein, and consists of plenty of lessons, barn chores, community service and team bonding.
MCET has been hard at work since boot camp ended and classes began with bi-weekly lessons. This semester MCET will be showing on these dates:
- September 24-25: IHSA Show at the University of the South (Sewanee)
- October 15-16: IHSA Show at Maryville College (Penrose Farm)
- February 11-12: IHSA Show at Murray State
- March 17: IHSA Regional championships at the University of the South (Sewanee)
MCET is also happy to support the Penrose Farm Interscholastic Equestrian Association Team, which is a middle and high school team coached by Christen Khym. The dates of their shows are listed below:
- October 22-23: IEA Show at Penrose Farm
