Maria Van Buskirk showing off a big win


The mission of the Ithaca College Equestrian Team is to promote teamwork and unity among riders, to advance individuals' riding skills, excel at horse shows, and show support to fellow team members as well as other teams.


The Ithaca College Equestrian team accepts all levels of riders and anyone who has some riding experience is encouraged to try out. We ride once or twice a week at If Only Farm, which is about 15 minutes from the IC campus. We will set up car pooling schedules in order to get there. Each member of the team pays dues per semester which includes: lessons, IHSA/USEF/USHJA fees, show fees, coach’s fees, and membership fees. Throughout the year the team will fundraise to help reduce dues. The price varies every year depending on how much money the team is allotted by the college, the number of horse shows per season, and the number of lessons per week. The exact dues will be announced at the first info meeting. Team members usually bring their own riding/show clothes, but we have a team closet for any gear a team member might be missing. Any other questions regarding ICET can be forwarded to the team's gmail account: icequestrian1@gmail.com.
