Equestrian is an emerging women’s sport for NCAA I and II schools and an equivalency sport for scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can be awarded to meet the limit per school. For example, an NCAA I school can award 30 participants each a 1/2 scholarship and still meet the limit of 15 per team. The National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) is the governing body for schools competing in NCAA sanctioned equestrian. Many NCAA member schools compete within the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) and are not subject to the NCAA scholarship limits. There are no men’s varsity teams, however, some equestrian teams are coed.
There are 73 Sponsored Schools for Equestrian 2017/2018
