What is a CPI Horse Show

During the CPI Horse Show event, athletes experience the college equestrian competition format; they can explore an equestrian-focused college fair, attend educational presentations and take advantage of the opportunity for direct conversations with college admissions representatives and equestrian team coaches.


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*
