40th Celebration of America’s Oldest and Largest Collegiate Equestrian National Championships
In 1973 there were no cell phones, home computers, smart cars or
internet but there were a determined handful of college coaches and
teams who met in good-natured competition for what became the first

This May 2-5, the Equine Arena of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in
Harrisburg will host the 40th celebration of what are now the oldest and
largest collegiate equestrian national championships in America,

who qualified through regional and zone finals for the privilege of
competing as college riding’s best of the best.

fell in love with cows, farming, and the dairy industry,” says Guindon who will
graduate this spring with a Master’s of Science in Dairy Nutrition.
