Our equestrian program is a club sport at our campus and we have riders from both the Venango and Clarion that compete. We have been members of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) since 2010. We show in Zone 6 Region 5 in English and Western competitions. We have two certified instructors as our coaches in English and in Western. The IHSA provides collegiate riders of all skills the opportunity to compete individually and as teams in equestrian shows.
If a student is not interested in competing the Venango College club also offers students the opportunity to learn about horses, take riding lessons and go on trail rides.
