Horse and Rider August News

Join the IEA at Carolina Country Acres!

No horse experience is necessary to join IEA and the membership is open to the public and private or barn teams for students in grades 6-12. Classes are offered in four ability levels: beginner, novice, intermediate, open. Any combination of ability levels on a team is permissible, but it is advantageous to have at least one rider in every class to be competitive as a team. Teams take turns hosting horse shows throughout the season. The competition season starts September 1st and ends at the National Finals in late spring / early summer. Students ride horses that are furnished by the host barn and chosen by random draw. The use of personal tack is not allowed and limited schooling is permitted. This equalizes competition variables and tests the horsemanship of the contestants.
