First IHSA show

I am a freshman in college and yesterday my team had our first IHSA show of the season. It went great! We had a doubleheader, and my team took home reserve both shows. I also won both of my classes of 10 in western intermediate 2 and earned 14 of the 36 points I need to level up to novice and qualify for regionals. I was so nervous showing at a college show for the first time, but now I cannot wait for the next show. And to anyone thinking about joining an IHSA or IEA team I would highly recommend it!!! It is a super awesome experience, and with the help of my coaches I have improved so much in the few months I have been riding for my school.

This is a picture from line up in my first class! I am on the middle horse

Congratulations on your win! Sounds like you had a fantastic time.

I showed IHSA for a few semesters. It was absolutely not my cup of tea, but it's great to hear that others had a better experience than I did!

Congratulations on a good show! A friend of mine just showed at her first IHSA as well. She really enjoyed herself, too.

I honestly think it depends on where you go to school at and the coaches. My coaches are great but I have heard from some people who have not had such good coaches and they don't like it as much.

^That's exactly what it was! I was not a fan of my coach at all. I'm not sure how your school does it, but she would teach 10+ students at once, all at different levels. Basically you were in the lesson until they passed what you could do, then you were asked to do two-point trot until the lesson was over. No fun!

That would be terrible! We ride in groups of between 3 and 8ish and we usually ride with other riders of our level. But with having the small lesson groups we don't get very long lessons but we go for lessons four days a week and are at the barn for between 3 and 5 hours each day doing chores,moving horses around, cleaning water, cleaning stalls and lots, making feed, giving the horses hose downs, riding and other random things

^Another issue was that the barn is over an hour away from the campus? O.O So far haha. Ugh.

Seriously, though, that's awesome! Sounds like you have an awesome setup! <3

Yeah we do have a pretty good setup. Our barn is only about 15 minutes from campus so its not to far at all. I could not imagine having to drive over an hour to the barn!
