Team Meeting & Purpose
The IEA PURPOSE is to set minimum standards for
competition, provide information concerning the
creation and development of school associated
equestrian sport programs, promote the common
interests of safe riding instruction and competition
and education on matters related to equestrian sport
at the middle and secondary school levels (primarily
ages 11 through 19).
To fulfill its purpose Chariot Riders and the IEA offer
guidance regarding the creation and development of
school and/or barn associated equestrian programs.
Chariot Riders IEA coaches aim to develop understanding
and appreciation of equestrian sports
through organized student competitions and additional
equine educational opportunities.
Through the IEA, students have the opportunity to
earn scholarships towards their college education
through awards in competition and through sportsmanship
Meetings held 4th Friday of the month at
our Ocean Facility.
Ride meets held during lesson schedule.
New member times and packages will be
sent via email upon receipt of application.
The unique aspect of these competitions, both at
the local and national level, is that none of the
riders will supply their own horses or tack. Instead,
the horses, saddle and other tack are provided
to the students at the show. The host
team arranges for the horses and equipment.
Some of the equipment may be borrowed from
various training barns and facilities. Though the
rider and horse have a short opportunity at orientation
in the over fences classes, essentially,
the horse is new to the rider, and the scores are
based upon horsemanship and equitation, not the
horse. The competitions involve six classes jumping
over fences no greater than three feet and
numerous flat equitation classes. Western riders
show in horsemanship and reining, and saddle
seat riders show in both rail and individual
workout classes. All disciplines offer a variety of
ability levels from beginner through advanced.
