About Us

The Clemson Equestrian Team (CUET) is a Club Sport at Clemson University and we compete in the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) (Zone 5, Region 3).  Riding within ISHA provides the opportunity for riders of all skills to compete individually and as a team. Clemson's team competes in each level of Hunt Seat Equitation and Western Horsemanship.

There are five levels of Hunt Seat Equitation on the flat and three levels over fences as well as five levels of Western Horsemanship and Reining.  Each new member completes a form and a tryout that establishes placement level, then as a rider wins ribbons and points during their IHSA career.  As they earn 36 points in their respective division, they qualify for post-season championship competition and move up through the divisions.
