 NCEA Varsity Equestrian 228 views  •   3286 days ago

So I'm going into my junior year of High School which means it's time to start thinking about college!
Whoop-de-do!

I was just wondering if anyone had any knowledge about the NCEA Varsity Equestrian program? I have a few friends that have recieved scholoraships from the NCAA through their riding abilities. But all three had to participate on the Equestrian teams.
This means they got to work with some horses that didn't cut it in big trainers barns to work. Then when it comes time to show, and only the best get to, horses are picked for the riders meaning you never know what your going to get.
I'm really interested in it & I was just wondering if anyone knew any more about the program or had any other thoughts.

Thanks!

Varsity is tough. I've got a few friends showing at KSU & OSU in the reining & horsemanship.
I don't know about other schools, but its a BIG deal at K State & Ok State. Most of their horses are donated & its a big deal if coaches scout you. There are 20-50 girls on the team, but maybe 5-10 consistently get to show.
I rode IHSA for 2 years & it was 100% worth it! If you get into varsity, GO FOR IT! I'm going to try out next school year. XD

Varsity is a tough program to get into, but if you can, DO IT!

I have a friend who just finished up with K-State and she was team captain for reining. They've now offered her a coaching position.

I love just how competitive it is! I just sent off an email to the NCEA office so hopefully I can get some more info tha t way too!

Awesome! Send me a message? I may know her haha
Just be sure to get your info in early if you want a shot. I know that there were no walk on tryouts at KSU last year (I don't think there are any this year) because their team was full
