About

The Bates Equestrian Team was founded in 1995 and competes in traditional hunt seat with the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) in Zone 1, Region 2.


‚ÄčThe team practices year round and competes in intercollegiate horse shows in the fall and spring. In accordance with the IHSA mission, the intercollegiate program attempts to eliminate the expenses of students owning horses and allow more students to compete. The theory behind this structure is to equalize the variables of the competition and test the horsemanship of the contestants. There are classes available for all abilities ranging from walk/trot classes to Open Division for more experienced riders, so all members are encouraged to show with the team.
