The University of Tennessee Equestrian Team (UTET) affiliates with the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association and compete in both Hunt Seat and Western competitions. As the flagship school of the state, we take a lot of pride in our team and representing UT. Since 1975, the UTET has helped collegiate riders compete with no need to own a horse. As a member of the IHSA, there are riders every year who have never ridden a horse before in their lives as well as those who have competed at the National and World level. The UTET competes in Equitation on the Flat, Equitation over Fences, Horsemanship, Ranch Riding, and Reining. We are a member of Zone 5 Region 1 and travel around the state of Tennessee and Kentucky to compete. After the regular season, there are opportunities to travel around the country for post-season competitions. In the past several years, many riders have represented the UTET at the Regional, Zone, Semi-Final, and National level in the IHSA.
