In 2015, the Ole Miss Equestrian Team partnered with Hunter’s Edge Stables as their premiere English-style Hunter Barn for their collegiate riding team. Ole Miss has riders of all skill levels, and the team comes for group lessons weekly. The team has continued to improve, and began competing in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) events in the spring 2016. The IHSA competitions are quite different, as compared to the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) events that we usually attend. It challenges the college-age riders because they are randomly assigned horses to take into the ring for judging at the event. It truly tests the rider’s abilities to quickly adapt to the horse in a stressful situation. At Hunter’s Edge, we encourage the Ole Miss girls to frequently ride different horses during their lessons to improve their skills and abilities to adapt to the nuances of other horses.
