Catching Up With Former Cacchione Cup Champions

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.

The Luck Of The Draw In IHSA

How do riders, trainers and judges account for the difference in horse abilities in a competition based on catch rides?

Students who compete on an Intercollegiate Horse Show Association team know the drill. This weekend, the horse that you show makes equitating a bit difficult. It drags you down the lines but has a stride the size of a postage stamp and jumps like a deer. Lead changes? No thanks. To put it nicely, you don’t exactly “click,” and who could blame you?

It's Time To Jump Back Into IHSA After A Long Vacation

Two-point without stirrups can only mean one thing: It’s Tournament of Champions time!

This week TUEQ will head to the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Va., to give the IHSA the ol’ one-two (or at the very least keep our heels down, execute lead changes where appropriate and find eight jumps stylishly).

While we had a blast at the last Tournament at Centenary College in New Jersey, we’re hungry for some better placings and more confident outings this time around.

Centenary College Rolls Through Collegiate Holiday Tournament Of Champions

As the reigning national champions and the host of this year’s Collegiate Holiday Tournament of Champions, Centenary College went into the competition, held Dec. 5 in Hackettstown, N.J., with some significant advantages.

The outcome was impressive, if predictable—Centenary’s two teams finished champion and reserve champion of the 28 teams in attendance.

A Solid End To The TUEQ Fall Semester

Now I can finally say it: TUEQ’s fall semester is OVER! It’s definitely bittersweet. I’m super excited to have the last few weeks of the semester to say goodbye to friends that are going abroad and to work on my final exams, but I will definitely miss the massive quantities of team time I’ve enjoyed for the past few months.

This week: TUEQ does TOC!

We’ve been invited to the Holiday Tournament of Champions at Centenary College this weekend, and on Friday six of us will pack up my car and take a road trip down south. And by south I mean anywhere it’s 5 degrees warmer than Boston. And by that I mean central New Jersey.

You Win Some, You Lose Some

It’s hard to believe that TUEQ’s first-semester regular season is over, but it is. We have five shows under out belts, a lot to reflect on, and a lot to be happy about. 

First, I should catch you up on our most recent shows. The day after our Tufts show was the Boston University show hosted at Holly Hill Farm in Hanover, Mass.

The Tufts Horse Show

Hosting a horse show, no matter how small or informal, is a massive undertaking.  It requires hours of preparation, an inhuman amount of patience, and several very supportive, flexible and understanding co-coordinators.  Oh, and a lot of cash.
