The Equestrian Club consists of two levels of membership: those who compete in events throughout Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois, and members that ride weekly, but do not compete. The club practices at Lucky Horse Equestrian Center, located 20 miles from campus in the town of Niles, MI, with a local coach, Kerry Hilgendorf. The club offers a weekly lesson for 12 weeks a semester to riders of all levels, from introductory to open fences. Undergraduates are eligible to compete in any of 10 regular season shows as members of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA), Zone 7, Region 4. They have won many regular season honors, including High Point and Reserve High Point Team at several horse shows, and they consistently have riders win High Point or Reserve High Point Rider at those shows too. Riders have qualified for all post-season levels of competition, at Regionals, Zones and Nationals. Consistently one of the top teams in Region 4, the Equestrian team again garnered many honors this past 2018-2019 year, overall ending as Reserve High Point Team. They sent 8 riders to Regionals and 4 to Zone finals.
