Youth Equestrian and Collegiate Equestrian

Youth equestrian and collegiate equestrian articles from Horse Illustrated and Young Rider magazines cover topics involving youth ages 17 and under and equestrian college programs and riding teams. Collegiate programs include the National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA), the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) equestrian program. Equestrian has been designated an emerging sport for women in Divisions I and II since 2002 in the NCAA, but that designation could change. With these three options, various colleges are participating in equestrian sports, in addition to having equine-related educational tracts. In addition, youth organizations abound, including 4-H, FFA, Pony Clubs, the Interscholastic Equestrian Association, and more. Learn about all of the various options and hear from riders and participants about these programs.
