Interscholastic Equestrian Association Horse Show

This western Semi-Finals show will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 7:30am-5:00pm in Cooper Arena and feature youth competitors (ages 12-19) representing teams from 15 states from the Midwest through the East Coast. Riders will compete using a draw-based format in Reining and Horsemanship classes. Riders who qualify from this competition will compete at the National Finals in Oklahoma City, OK, in June 2019.

Now entering its 17th year, the IEA has nearly 14,000 members across the United States riding and coaching Hunt Seat, Western and Dressage disciplines. The non-profit (501(c)3) IEA was organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students and is open to public and private schools and barn teams. There is no need for a rider to own a horse because the IEA supplies a mount and tack to each equestrian for competitions. Its purpose is to set minimum standards for competition, provide information concerning the creation and development of school associated equestrian sport programs, to generally promote the common interests of safe riding instruction and competition and education on matters related to equestrian competition at the middle and secondary school levels.
