Full-time undergraduate students are eligible to compete on the IHSA or OCEA. Part-time students may only compete on the OCEA circuit. The university requires that all students be in good academic standing. No competitive experience necessary! All members are required to be competitive members for the team on either or both circuits.
At the beginning of each semester we host an Information Session to discuss the requirements and costs associated with the equestrian team, as well as the horse shows and team events we have planned for the year. If you are interested in attending, please contact our team secretary.
Tryouts are held at the beginning of each semester. Riders must sign up in advance (contact the team secretary for more info).

The University of Ottawa Equestrian Team receives very little funding from the school. All members should be prepared to finance themselves and become dedicated to working the team's fundraising events.
