About The Team

The Purdue Equestrian Team is an inclusive team that takes riders from all different equine backgrounds and invites them to participate in the hunt seat equitation discipline in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. To learn more about IHSA click here! There is a place for everyone on the team, even those who have never ridden a horse before, and we have two types of memberships: riding and non riding.

Riding Members: We are currently accepting 50 riding members each semester, with tryouts being hosted in the fall. As a riding member, you have the opportunity to take weekly group lessons, compete at intercollegiate horse shows, and participate in fundraisers, socials, barn work sessions, and other activities.

Single Semester Financials:
Riding dues: $500
Club dues: $15
IHSA membership: $45
Horse show entry fees: $35 per class​​​

Non Riding Members: Whether you aren’t interested in riding, or do not make the riding team, you can participate as a non riding member. As a non riding member, you have the opportunity to participate in fundraisers, barn work sessions, socials, equine education, and other activities. Being a non riding member is great for students wanting to see what the team is all about without the time and financial commitment of riding.
