Mission Statement

The Hampshire College Equestrian Team is a competitive student group made up of dedicated team members with common goals: improving horseback riding skills, creating a friendly, supportive, dedicated team environment, and remaining safe while doing so.

The team practices once weekly in group practices at Muddy Brook Farm and is coached by owner Kathy Roberts. Instruction is provided in hunter/jumper and equitation, and all practices are mandatory.

Many on the team compete in IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) shows against other college students in the area. Those who choose to compete are required to attend an additional weekly practice.

Students of all experience levels are encouraged to come be a part of the team and work to learn and improve their riding in a friendly, supportive team environment. Whether you have extensive showing experience or have never sat on a horse in your life, HCET wants you!

 2016-2017 IHSA TEAM


HCET Kate.jpeg

I'm Kate, and I'm a co-captain on the IHSA team. I'm a Div 3 studying Sports Psychology and Animal-Assisted Therapy. I've been riding for 13 years, and I love being on Hampshire's IHSA team because it's a great way to make new friends who share the same passion for the sport I love. I also grew up riding in a competitive hunter/jumper atmosphere, and I love how friendly and low-key it is to be on the Hampshire team.

This is Pixie-- she loves to jump. She's a sassy lady, but that's what makes her so much fun!

HCET Alexa.jpeg

Hi I'm Alexa! I am a third year at Hampshire and I study Animal Behavior and Psychology. I've been riding dressage and hunter-jumper for 11 years. I love being on the IHSA team because its a great opportunity to have fun and bond with my fellow teammates!

This is Pepe! He's adorable and obese and loved by all.

HCET Celeste.jpeg

Hello! I'm Celeste. I am another co-captain of the IHSA team. I am in my third year at Hampshire studying Graphic Design and Studio Arts! I've only been taking lessons these past two years, but I have been working around horses my whole life. I love being able to ride on the team for unlimited pony (and teammate) cuddles and support.

This cutie is Jaeger. At times I love him more than he loves me, but he's a spunky pal who can do you no wrong while riding!

HCET Sonya.jpeg

Hi, I'm Sonya and a co-captain as well. I've been riding on and off for 12 years. I love being on the IHSA team because my previous riding experience has primarily been Natural Horsemanship. IHSA allows me to compete in a positive atmosphere.

This is Lyra, she is a great jumper and has a great spirit.

HCET Gusty.jpeg

Hi, I'm Gusty. I have been riding my whole life. I love being on the IHSA team because it's an affordable and easy way to be part of the horse community and part of a supportive barn while at college! I grew up barrel racing and 3-Day eventing, and was a member of the US Pony Club for 8 years.

This is Louie, he is like an onion not only is he grey and smelly but also grumpy on the outside and a sweetheart once you get to know the real lougigieee!

HCET Tinsley.jpeg

Hi, I'm Tinsley! I've been riding for 16 years. I started out as an eventer and then did IEA in high school! I love the horses we get to work with and the atmosphere of the team!

The horse I'm pictured with is Pablo! He's my baby! He's very straight forward and honest. He'll jump anything! He also loves cuddles and hugs.

HCET Julianna.jpeg

Hi, I'm Julianna. I am a third year and I study psychology of addiction and mental illness along with art. I've been riding for 8 years. I love being on the IHSA team because it is really great to see all that I have learned and apply it. I ride hunter seat but have been learning some dressage.

This is Govenor. He is a wicked sweet heart and may look very innocent but has some secret powers!

Hi! I'm Claire I am a third year studying cognition and animal behavior. I've been riding for 8 years but I've never had a better time riding than with the Hampshire team! I love the Hampshire IHSA team because it is a friendly, relaxed, and supportive environment that has pushed me to become a better rider.
