“We are updating the design and navigation to make things simpler and fresher. This new site will also be much more mobile-friendly,” says 2012 IHSA Oregon State national champion team assistant western coach, Carrie Hertel. The all-volunteer IHSA Website Committee consists of Hertel, Lori Cramer, Jen Earles, and Elena Ruddy.
The new design incorporates several new features that will benefit teams and prospective riders, as well as sponsors and links within the equestrian sport world. The new site includes enhanced simplicity, more news and images, and accessibility to popular social media links such as Facebook and Twitter.
The IHSA Web and Marketing Committees have been in concert with the effort: “We have recognized the need to keep up with our tech-savvy student riders. Using the collective expertise of our organization, the new website will reflect the best that everyone had to offer. We are pleased with the direction of the new design and look forward to welcoming feedback from students and everyone who uses the website.”
IHSAinc.com will be easy to navigate, and retain its popular functions while expanding options such as an increase in images and posts to its news page, On The Rail.
The IHSA mission is to promote competition for riders of all skill levels, who compete individually and as teams at regional and national levels. IHSA is based on the principle that any college student should be able to participate in horse shows regardless of financial status or riding level.More than 400 educational institutions in the U.S. and parts of Canada have teams belonging to IHSA, including student academic clubs, JV, and/or varsity programs.
