UNC’s Equestrian Club is a coed, undergraduate-only team. There are tryouts held at the beginning of each academic year to secure a spot within the club. We are open to all levels of riding ranging from those who have never ridden before to those who have competed at the national level. We compete in Zone 4, Region 3 of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA). The Equestrian Club is a great way to gain new skills while also enjoying a sense of community within the club.
