The Hamilton College Equestrian Team was officially recognized in 2003. Since then, the team has continued to grow, adding new members each year. Riders of any experience level are welcome to join Hamilton's Equestrian Team. Our team boasts of a range of riding abilities from seasoned competitors to those members who are just learning to ride for the first time. We hold tryouts at the beginning of each semester. HET rides out of White Fox Farm, a top hunter/jumper facility that is conveniently five minutes away from campus. Barn owner, Jean Raposa, acts as the head coach.
The team is a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA), competing against 13 other schools in Zone 2 Region 1. Other schools in our region include Cornell University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Elmira College, Ithaca College, Alfred University, St. John Fischer University, RIT, and some of the SUNY schools among others. We typically have 8 shows, which all of these schools attend.
