The Boston College Club Equestrian Team was founded in 1993 by a small group of students and has grown over the years. The club is a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) and competes against schools in the region such as BU, Tufts, and Northeastern. The practice throughout the school year at Hillside Meadows Farm, which is located in Graton, Massachusetts about an hour away from campus. Most members attend lessons once a week and in addition, those that are on the show team compete on Saturdays and Sundays during both the fall and spring season. Tryouts for the Show Team are held at the beginning of each semester, because there are only a limited number of spots available at each competition. Riders of all abilities are encouraged to join the team though, because there is a mix of all riding levels. Anyone who has a passion for riding horses and wants the opportunity to ride during college should consider joining the Equestrian Team.
