  1. Do your students board and ride their own horses at lessons and shows?

    1. Hi Maggie, students ride team lesson horses in all lessons. Additionally, IHSA is centered around the ability to ride a totally new horse without any warm up. At shows, all the horses are provided and we draw from a hat the name of a horse that we compete on. Some students board their horses at nearby farms and ride them on their own time.
      Hope this helps!
