Equestrian Club to host horse show event

By Korey Peterson


NIU will host its only Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, IHSA, event of the fall tomorrow and Saturday. Several of NIU’s divisional IHSA opponents will be on hand including Truman State University and Washington University, the two teams that are currently ahead of the Huskies in the team point standings. Illinois State University trails NIU by just six points followed by Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. About nine total collegiate teams will participate.

On Friday, riders will compete at Fox Creek Stable, 23815 W. Milton Road, in Wauconda with Saturday’s events being held at Dassenbrook Stable, 45W002 Route 38, in Elburn. Both shows are scheduled to begin around 8 a.m. and last until about 2:30 p.m. Admission to both events are free with concessions being served on Saturday by children from the Therapeutic Riding Center.
