Equestrian Event Schedule

See Our Equestrian Teams in Action

The equine program at St. Andrews University participates in many equestrian events throughout the school year. We regularly compete in IHSA Hunter Seat, IHSA Western, and IDA Dressage competitions at our facility as well as at other universities. These competitions give our students hands-on experience, teaching them valuable skills to be successful in the equine industry. If you’re interested in learning more about our program or want to see us compete, come check us out at one of the many events we’re attending. On this page, you’ll find an events calendar as well as a list of past events and links to the results.
