Both events are free and open to the public.

 “The United States Equestrian Federation Career Fair will be held in conjunction with the IHSA National Championships, an event which will host over 500 college equestrians and their coaches, families, and friends. The career fair is an opportunity for students to be introduced to successful businesses within the equine industry and create avenues for relationships, internships, and career connections. These are students who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and majors ranging from Business Management, Communications or Chemistry,” said Natalie Norwood with the USEF main office at KHP.
