Hosted at Smallside Farm

The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) mission is to promote lifelong involvement in equestrian athletics.

Fast Facts

  • No rider needs to own a horse.

  • The Green Oaks IEA team supports two disciplines: Hunt Seat and Dressage.

  • 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.

  • Riders in grades 4-8 are eligible for Middle School Teams,  riders in grade 9-12 compete at the High School level, and riders 18+ compete in the new Adult Pilot Program.

  • Points are tracked for individual rider accomplishments AND for overall, team accomplishments. Individuals and teams earn points to qualify for regional, zone and national finals.

  • The competition season starts August 1st and ends at the National Finals in late spring / early summer.

  • Riders 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.
