Truman Equestrian Team to Host Horse Show

The Truman State University Equestrian Team will be hosting a Western ISHA Horse Show beginning at 10 a.m., Sept. 24, and continuing at 8 a.m., Sept. 25, at the University Farm.

Participants for this intercollegiate event will include students from Northern Illinois University, Missouri State University, Black Hawk Community College, Kansas State University, and possibly Washington University and Culver-Stockton College.

This western show will feature events from beginner walk-trot to advanced reining and pattern classes. Each participant is evaluated and qualifies for a predetermined class. This ensures that the competition will be equal for all contestants. Unlike some equestrian competitions, the emphasis is on how well the participants ride the horses.

The Truman Equestrian team has about 75 members and about 40 will be participating in this show. Each student who hopes to compete in the show is asked to pay a $20 entry fee. Admission is free for spectators.

Contact Noelle Hunt at 785.7141 for additional information about this event.
