On This Day in IUPUI History: November 24, 1984

November 24, 1984. 

On this day, the IUPUI Equestrian Club traveled (perchance they rode?) to Taylor University in northern Indiana to compete with thirteen other colleges for individual and team honors. Five IUPUI riders took part, of whom Jenny Lieber won both of her classes, taking the High Point rider of the show. Barb Bright placed third in jumping, and Danna Dill finished in fifth place in Advanced Stock. Overall, the IUPUI "Metro Club" took seventh place in the competition.

The IUPUI Sagamore, the student newspaper, indicates that an Equestrian Club flourished in the 1980s and 1990s on campus. Unfortunately, staff in Archives know next to nothing about it and can provide readers no records and little information about it. Should anyone know of information about the club and its activities, please feel free to contact us.

In the meantime, we offer this photo from our Sagamore photos holdings. The name of rider, horse, and the location are unknown.
