The Wilson College IHSA Team competes with other schools and universities at hunter horse shows in flat and fences classes. It gives students the opportunity to ride horses competitively during the school year.

This club was created to allow people who enjoy riding and competing in equitation events/ English Pleasure riding to maintain an activity about which they are passionate through their college career.
Once weekly usually on Tuesdays. We discuss performance at shows, state of the barn/horses, and relevant information such as fundraiser dates and volunteer hours.
We volunteer once per semester for 6 hours to help clean and maintain the Equestrian Center on campus as well as weekly practices and about 5 IHSA shows per semester.
We have a table at the Activities Fair in the fall and Spring Fling Carnival.
Anyone who enjoys horses and is committed to being a part of the team may tryout and join the club as either a riding member or non-riding member.
