Women's Equestrian

The Golden Eagle women's jumping seat and western equestrian teams compete in the NCAA Division II Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) and National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) - Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) conference within NCEA.  Being part of both associations is a unique opportunity for University of Minnesota Crookston athletes.

The Golden Eagles have been one of the top teams in the region for Western and Jumping Seat over their existence as a program. They continue to grow competitively at the NCEA level. Minnesota Crookston is in their first season under Haley Pembroke, who competed as a rider at the University of Auburn at the NCEA level.
