ISSRA Scholarship Recipient Announced

The Intercollegiate Saddle Seat Riding Association is proud to announce their 2020 Scholarship winner, Sarah Langford from the University of Kentucky. Sarah is a third-year Pharmacy student, with a long-list of academic accolades.

Langford grew up riding and showing Morgan horses in Michigan, before attending the University of Kentucky for undergraduate studies and then continued on in her goal to become a pharmacist. Langford has been competing on the UK Saddle Seat Team for two years now, and plans to continue riding and having horses in her life forever. She is a very deserving recipient of the ISSRA Scholarship. 

In 2018, ISSRA created a scholarship to be given to an undergraduate, full-time student participating on an ISSRA team. This scholarship is for $1,500 and is applicable to the school of their choice. Applications for the 2019-2020 scholarship were due November 1st, 2019 and were judged by a committee outside of the ISSRA.   

The Intercollegiate Saddle Seat Riding Association was founded in 2008 in an effort to provide college students the opportunity to continue their riding without the need to own their own horse and to promote the saddle seat discipline to new riders.

Since that time ISSRA has grown to include riders from schools across Kentucky, and has also included colleges in surrounding states. Additionally ISSRA is looking to expand across the country, and would love involvement from other schools.

If you are a barn interested in coaching a team, and have a college or University nearby, please contact ISSRA President, Deveau Zubrod for more information about starting a team,
