The Alumni Tournament of Champions manages Hunt Seat and Western annual horse shows to celebrate IHSA alumni. In its third year, the Hunt Seat Tournament returned to Centenary College and was open to all active IHSA Alumni. New in 2014 was our Western Alumni Tournament. The western tournament is open to all western alumni, both current and inactive members of the IHSA along with new college graduates. The 2014 Western Tournament was held at Red Wing Farm in Hilltown, PA.

In 2015, the tournament will be held at St. Timothy's School with both disciplines at one location all in one day. The 2015 tournament will feature four new classes! New to both Western and Hunt Seat are the Future Alumni Cup classes - each region will be able to send 2 graduating seniors to participate in a two phased cacchione cup like final. We've also added Reunion classes for Hunt Seat riders that are not currently active alumni.

New for 2015 will also be the IHSA Alumni High Score award. Active alumni will compete all season long and their top 7 shows worth of points will count towards the Alumni High Score award. More information about the High Score Award can be found here.

In 2014, 60 riders from 9 states competed for 5 champion Hunt Seat titles and 5 champion Western titles, including our annual Alumni Cup winners!
Unique to all alumni horse shows are the Alumni Cup classes. Each IHSA region may have up to two alumni represent their region in a Cacchione style competition. For Hunt Seat, this includes a fences and flat phase and for Western, this includes a horsmanship and reining phase. In both classes, the top riders will return for additional testing and riding of ribbons.

We feel that the Alumni Cup can add another exciting aspect to riding IHSA alumni. We encourage alumni representatives to track overall points in fences and flat and reward their top riders by sending them to represent them in the Alumni Cup. 

The purpose of the All Alumni horse shows are to expand the opportunities for alumni to ride in a finals type atmosphere. Only 18 alumni qualify for the annual IHSA Nationals horse show and our show is a championship alternative for many whose post season ended earlier than intended. We crown four individual champions and our Alumni Cup winner. In 2014, the Hunt Seat Alumni Cup was won by Sara McCoy Palmer from the University of Delaware.
Also in 2014, the Western Alumni Cup was won by Kimberly King from the University of Tennessee.

In the past, these gifts have included saddle pads, photo frames, mugs, key-chains, or small horse-related items. We would like to work with you to design a prize that includes appropriate advertisement of your product. Sponsorship includes a free one half page ad in both our prize list and day of class program. Any product or service materials (business cards, pamphlets, etc) provided will be distributed in participant goodie bags and any advertisement banners hung in the arena at the event.

      Participant Gift Bags - Our organization also needs small thank you gifts for participants and are hoping to collect product samples for participant gift bags. We are also offering a free one quarter page ad in both our prize list and day of class program.

      I hope that you will consider sponsoring a division or the ribbon gifts to help us achieve a successful event for the alumni riders. This is an innovative and relatively inexpensive way for your business to create a relationship with potential repeat customers. Please consider my proposal and contact me with any questions.
