Listen in as two collegiate riders talk about their experience competing on an IHSA team!

Mia is studying Psychology and Business at the University of Arizona where she has been a member of the equestrian team for the past two years. Before her collegiate career, she was an active competitor in hunter/jumper disciplines. Spending such a large amount of time with horses, it led her to having a great interest in positive reinforcement horse training.

Kyla is a first-year student at Bloomsburg University studying criminal justice. She is a first-year member of Bloomsburg's IHSA hunt seat team. Prior to starting her collegiate career, she competed on the "A" circuit in hunters and equitation.
