The International Student Riding Association is a nonprofit organization that helps US University students compete internationally at Student sponsored Equestrian competitions. In addition the ISRA acts as the National Responsible for the US in relations with AIEC (International University Equestrian Federation). Because our riders come from all across the country and most of the international competitions take place abroad, the ISRA organizes the entire trip for teams competing. This means reserving airplane tickets and accommodations for extra days apart from competition days, supplying all extra meals, and coordinating transportation and competition fees with the organizers of the hosting country. Competition: Tournament style, with each round increasing in difficulty. Each team rider competes in both dressage and show jumping. Dressage: Final round includes freestyle and Prix St. Georges-level test. Show Jumping: Up to 4'6" in final round. National Championship: Held every two years in different locations. Other: Horses and tack are supplied by the organizers. A five- minute warm-up with two practice jumps in show jumping is allowed.
