The University of TX (at Austin) Equestrian Team is a group of riders at all levels competing huntseat equitation in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. What makes this competition unique is that we do not show on our own horses, they are provided by the host college. For instance, if we go to Texas A&M for a competition, we draw a horses' name out of a cup, get on that horse and go strait into the show ring. There is no time to get used to the horse!! There are classes over fences and on the flat. This kind of competition is excellent for anyone seriously interested in improving their riding skills.
