The Islip Horsemen's Association Mounted Drill Team "The Spirit of Long Island" has been performing their precision drill throughout New York and New Jersey since 1978. Members of the drill team have changed over the years, but the enthusiasm and dedication to perfection has remained constant.
To entertain and demonstrate sportsmanship, horsemanship, team work and dedication.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” ― Phil Jackson
“The Spirit of Long Island” was formed in 1978 by IHA member, John Jorgensen who was a member of the New York City Mounted Police Unit.
