Thiel College Equestrians

The Thiel College Equestrian Team introduces or extends equestrian skills and knowledge.

During the fall of 2012, Thiel College launched the Thiel College Equestrian Club with the help of Lory Nagel and Jenna Malnar. The Thiel College Equestrian Club (TCEC) was a student organization that introduces or extends equestrian skills and knowledge in horseback riding lessons. In 2015, the Club became a Team (TCET). TCET accepts beginner, intermediate and advanced students interested in riding horses. Participants can ride Western, English or both riding disciplines. TCEC members have the opportunity to compete through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA). The association provides collegiate riders of all skill levels the opportunity to compete as a team and individually in equestrian competition. IHSA competitions provide saddled horses for riders; cutting down on the financial burden of showing. IHSA shows are judged on ability of a rider and not the performance of the horse.

Mission: This Team activity is an introduction or extension to basic horseback riding, horse handling, and horse care. Ground instruction teaches proper, safe, and organized horse handling and horse care. Mounted instruction is based on teaching the rider a position and use of aids to effectively and efficiently communicate with the horse. The instruction provides its students with a good working position and basic horse knowledge that forms a solid foundation for a future in horseback riding.
