All Alumni Tournament

Click here to edit subtitle


Check our our stream of 2014 Hunt Seat ATOC:

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.

Success Equestrian is providing their amazing grippy saddle pads to some of our ribbon winners. 

Our no-slip saddle pads address a very common problem of saddle slipping and stability while at the same time maintaining a ‘traditional show ring quality’ appearance. The saddle pads keep the tack in place, including the pad itself, without the need for extra pieces of rubber stripping or chamois pieces.

The special open cell foam seat insert adds extra stability and shock absorption. The flexible air flow no-slip grip is strategically built into the pad only where it’s needed eliminating unnecessary sweating on the horse’s sides. Best of all, the whole pad is breathable and washes great.  Take a look and see how our technical saddle pads can help you and your horse.
