Jessica Simons           PRESIDENT 


I am a senior from Littleton, Colorado double majoring in Animal Science and Agribusiness with plans to go into Equine Research. This will be my fourth year on the team and I can’t imagine going through college without all my teammates. I have competed in western, hunter/jumper, and eventing. I am looking forward to another great year!




Bethany Sacks       VICE PRESIDENT


I am a junior from Rochester, New York majoring in biological sciences. I have been riding for about twelve years now and could not imagine my life without it. I competed mainly in local shows and IEA before joining the IHSA team here my freshman year of college. I am so grateful for how this team has helped me grow as a rider and allowed me to make some amazing friendships with my teammates. I feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing group of riders. I look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our team this season.
