American National Riding Commission

St. Andrews participates in the American National Riding Commission (ANRC) Intercollegiate Equitation Championship, traditionally held annually in April. The National championship showcases college’s most talented riders in a team competition judged and scored on equitation skills in four phases:

  • Program Ride (includes USEF Hunter Equitation Tests)
  • Hunter Seat Equitation Medal Course
  • Derby Course (natural jumps in a field)
  • Written test based on riding theory and stable management

The championship provides two levels of competition, a Novice division at the 2’6” height and the National division at 3’ fences. Students may compete on a college-owned horse or a privately owned horse. The highest score in each phase will be awarded to the rider who demonstrates excellence in equitation and produces a smooth, cooperative performance exemplifying quality hunter movement both on the flat and over fences.

Many St. Andrews riders have obtained National Rider Ratings from ANRC. St. Andrews won the National Champion in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2007 and was Reserve Champion in 2004 and 2006. Additionally, our riders have been the Individual Champion or Reserve Champion at the ANRC National Finals 12 times. St. Andrews has been the host of the National Championship six times.
