About the Team
In 2012, Claddagh proudly became home to the UMASS Dartmouth Equestrian Team. The Equestrian Team competes in the IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) in the fall, winter and spring seasons.
The IHSA provides collegiate riders of all skills the opportunity to compete individually and as teams in equestrian competition. It was founded on the principle that any college student should be able to participate in horse shows regardless of his or her riding ability or financial status.
Emphasis is on learning, sportsmanship and fun. Over 8,300 students representing 370+ colleges and universities from across the United States and Canada participate in the IHSA. Contact Mary for more information.
In 2015, Claddagh's Sarah Kieran was the Region 1 Cacchione Rider and finished 3rd at the National IHSA Finals. Way to go, Sarah!
