I'm a sophomore in high school but i'm starting to look at colleges and such. I'd like to ride at school and I would love joining an NCAA team, but looking at some of peoples' application videos was a bit intimidating. I'd consider myself a good rider, but I've never had the opportunity to ride a "made" horse. I primarily break ponies and work with very green horses who can't even jump a cross rail yet, let alone look perfect over a 3'6 course... I think I'm going to start getting my name out and see if I can get some rides and show experience on bigger and better horses, though the problem is going to be financially because, as you all know, horses are not exactly cheap.
Anyway, my question is do any of you ride at your college? If so, where and do you like it? I'm primarily interested in NCAA, but I'd also love hearing about how IHSA works too. I'd just like to get a feel for how this stuff works and what would be the best thing for me to pursue because I have a feeling college is going to sneak up on me
