Middlebury College Team
The Middlebury College Equestrian Team makes its home at The Equestry
The Middlebury College Equestrians: since 1995.
Middlebury College Coach Kate Selby has years of experience both in coaching and riding on intercollegiate teams. Former IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) Regional President, Selby is assisted by student officers who help run the team, and organize Middlebury's own Intercollegiate Horse shows held each year in October.
In intercollegiate competitions, riders must compete on unfamiliar horses drawn at random both on the flat and over fences, with little or no warm-up time. It can be quite exciting to see!
Competitions are held each fall and spring throughout the region which includes teams from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Canada.
The hunt seat team consists of riders from Walk-Trot through Open Flat and Fences (up to 3 feet). Bates College, Bowdoin College, Castleton State College, Colby-Sawyer College, Dartmouth College, Endicott College, Middlebury College, Norwich University, University of Maine-Orono, University of New England, University of New Hampshire, University of Vermont, and all compete in this region.
