The Lander Equestrian Team competes in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) which has sanctioned events and shows across the Southeast. Riders who ride Hunt Seat will compete in Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat and over Fences. Western Riders will compete in Western Horsemanship and Reining. The regular season shows are within Zone 5 Region 3, with shows being hosted at different schools throughout the season.



The coach will choose riders to compete based on how each rider is performing at home and based on the number of riders allowed for each competition.

When a rider accumulates 36 points, they will qualify for Regional Finals in that class and move up to the next level of class (1st place= 7pts, 2nd place= 5pts, and on down). Riders will compete on horses provided by the hosting University and are not allowed any prep time with the horse that the rider draws.
