IHSA Invites Equestrian-Focused Businesses to Register for
the 2018 Career Fair at Nationals

Fair Collage

Fairfield, Conn. ­­– Feb. 23, 2018 – The Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) will host a career fair during the 2018 National Championship at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Friday, May 4, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  This event provides equestrian-focused businesses the rare opportunity to recruit talented young people for internships and employment and to educate a collegiate audience about their brands.

More than 500 college students and hundreds of volunteers from across North America will be on hand for the equestrian competition, many of whom hope to secure summer internships, employment and to launch their careers. These young equestrians represent a wide range of subject majors, coursework and expertise.

"This is a great opportunity for companies to recruit the best and brightest young people," said Bob Cacchione, IHSA founder and executive director. "It has been a very successful event and I encourage equestrian brands to participate."

IHSA Unveils New Brand Identity

IHSA master logo

Fairfield, Conn. Feb. 12, 2018 - The Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) is proud to announce the launch of their modern new logo to represent the brand. The new logo will unify the entire organization under one image.

In 1967, the IHSA was launched with just two colleges competing in hunter seat equitation. The organization was praised for its innovative competition format and quickly caught on. In 1979, the Western divisions premiered at the IHSA National Championships.

The IHSA has grown and evolved over the last 50 years. The original logo, portraying a horse jumping a split-rail fence, was created when the organization was in its infancy. A separate Western logo, depicting a reining slide was created after the Western divisions were added. Though encased in a similar circular format with the same color scheme as the original, the artwork was of a different style than the original. The IHSA leadership was challenged to combine the images in a compact form.

The new logo is a departure from the detailed realism of the original and reflects a new modern approach that is representational and borderless to convey the dynamism and spirit of the IHSA.

"Proud as we are of our rich history, it was time for a change," said Bob Cacchione, IHSA founder and executive director. "With the increase in communications and the significance of social media, it is really important to have one image that represents the organization. We are excited to move forward with our new look."
