The Equestrian Club at Florida Atlantic University was founded in 2009 with four members. Today, the club is proudly considered a “top tier Owl” in the Sports and Recreation department of FAU with over 30 dedicated members that all share the love of horses as competitive and non-competitive equestrians. Members do not need any prior horse experience, or even a horse, to be in the club.

Throughout the year, FAU Equestrian members participate in many fundraisers, volunteer for the community, host IHSA horse shows, and put on local schooling shows to raise funds for the travel team, which competes in classes ranging from Walk-Trot to open divisions in Hunt Seat.

he FAU Equestrian Show Team proudly competes at horse shows sanctioned by the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA). The IHSA encompasses 40 Regions in 8 Zones with over 400 member colleges in 45 states and Canada and represents 10,000 members. Students who do well at IHSA shows can qualify for regional and national championship competitions. FAU belongs to Zone 5, Region 5 of the IHSA.
