The Fairfield University Equestrian Team was founded in 1992 and is a member of Zone 1 Region 5 of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, which can be found at ihsainc.org. Club members must register with the IHSA at the beginning of each academic semester.

Fairfield club members currently ride at both Sea Horse Stables in Newtown, CT as well as Fair Hill Farm in Easton, CT.

Individual practices are held at the sites throughout the competition season.

The club's membership is typically between 12-20 riders during any given semester. Rosters are usually formed at the beginning of each fall semester, but club membership opportunities remain open during the academic year.

FUET offers fantastic riding and horse showing opportunities for all skill levels, from beginner to open. Coach Naomi Gauruder works with club members from various riding backgrounds, which can include, but is not limited to; walk - trot riders wanting to canter or competitive jumpers wanting to test their ability on unfamiliar horses. Current club members come from various backgrounds including hunters, jumpers and dressage.

The Fairfield Equestrian Team welcomes inquiries from prospective students and invites FUET alumni to join them during the riding and show seasons.
