WHAT IS A CPI HORSE SHOW
The College Preparatory Invitational (CPI) Horse Show offers young equestrians, in grades 8 – 12, the opportunity to explore the college equestrian experience through comprehensive education, competition, and scholarship/community service program.
The CPI Hunt Seat Equitation Competition portion of the event allows the athlete to experience the unique collegiate equestrian competition format – giving each athlete the opportunity to experience the draw, and then display their equitation, sportsmanship and horsemanship skills in managing an unfamiliar mount in a competition setting.
The CPI saves families the expense of transporting and stabling a competition horse by providing suitable horses, saddles, and tack, so participants need only bring their show clothes, helmets, and crops.
The College Fair at the CPI Horse Show hosts representatives from colleges and universities from around the country allowing college-bound athletes to meet coaches and/or school representatives and explore the options they offer for riding in college. * Please note that NCEA (NCAA) colleges may not participate in the college fair due to NCAA recruiting guidelines/restrictions*
Academic excellence and social integrity are key components of the College Preparatory Invitational (CPI) Horse Show. Through the CPI Scholarship and Educational Fund, we encourage these values and reward them with the opportunity to win scholarships for academics.
Athletes are invited to become involved with the CPI Scholarship and Educational Fund’s Jr. Ambassador program. Members can earn community service hours by fundraising for the CPI Scholarship and Educational Fund, as well as fundraise their own entry to a CPI Horse Show through the CPI Jr. Ambassador “Fund My Ride” Program. All funds raised through the CPI Jr. Ambassador Program are used to award scholarships to deserving student-athletes who participate in CPI Horse Show events.
