IUP Equestrian Team
Who Can Join?
Any full time IUP student is eligible to join the team. You do not have to be an experienced rider, or have even been on a horse! When you join, you will be placed in a level based on your riding skills. If you decide to show, you will compete against other riders in your level of your same capabilities. You do not have to show to be a member of the team. IUPET depends on both showing and non-showing members to be a functioning organization.

FormsEVERYONE needs to get their forms back in ASAP. You are NOT allowed to start riding until your forms are in. If you are even thinking about showing, you need to get your IHSA form completed (old or new). Go to www.ihsainc.com and fill out a member form (or go to your old one with your user name and password), print it out, and bring it to the next meeting. Fees for IHSA are $30 for either English or Western and $40 for both. Also, English members must sign up for USHJA. Go to http://www.ushja.org/ click on "Membership", "online membership" then sign in and pick the $15 membership option. Finally team member dues are $25 per person per semester. This needs to be turned in with your forms.
Lesson prices for the English team are to be determined. Lesson prices for the Western team are $175 for non-showing members (1 lesson per week for 9 weeks) and $250 for showing members (2 lessons per week for 9 weeks) for both the fall and spring semesters at SkyBar Farm. Please contact the English team captain, Shelly Wampole (email@example.com), or the Western team captain, Bethany Banaszewski (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you are interested in joining either team.
