Some past winners of this prestigious championship recall what the experience meant to them.
Every year since 1973 the USEF Cacchione Cup has honored the national individual hunter seat high-point rider in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association.
Over the years the coveted prize has been awarded to a broad spectrum of equestrians. Some of them made careers out of riding and went on to win Olympic medals, while others pursued different endeavors. Many of them remained involved with horses regardless of their competitive aspirations.
