Bob Story has sculpted the College of Charleston equestrian team into one of national prestige. Story came to the College in 1980 to take over the program, which was then in its infancy as an equestrian club team. The team became an intercollegiate club team in 1983 when the Cougars joined the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, becoming a varsity program. 

CofC has competed in the IHSA Nationals, collegiate riding's biggest stage, 24 times since 1983 and has earned the IHSA Zone 5 Region 3 title 26 times. He has overseen 18 individual national champions.
