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."
