The Butler University Club Equestrian Team (BUCE) is a recognized club sport at Butler University. The team consists of members of all riding abilities in the hunt seat discipline. BUCE is a great opportunity for students to continue riding and improve their riding ability while attending Butler University.


Team members who are interested have the opportunity to compete in shows. BUCE competes against local colleges through the IHSA in Region 7, Zone 1. The Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) is the governing body for the shows BUCE participates in. There are about 5 shows a semester that BUCE members show in to gather points towards qualifying for Regionals, which are held at the end of the spring semester. From Regionals, riders can then move on to Zones, and then to Nationals, which gathers the top riders (at all levels) from each Zone to compete for a national title.

BUCE practices at a local hunter/jumper barn about 30 minutes north of campus. The riders are coached by Dawn Stumm at Greyhavens Farms which is located in Zionsville, Indiana. Practice frequecy is based on the team member’s availability and how often they would like to ride. The minimum number of lessons required is one lesson package a month in order to be considered an active member of BUCE. Most riders take lessons at least once a week.
