Our 2017 team was small but mighty, with only high-school age riders. We were highly competitive against much larger teams, we had a wonderful time, and all of our riders were very successful in meeting their goals. We are now in our second year of IEA showing and looking forward to expanding our team to include middle-school riders next year.  


In addition to IEA showing, we participate in a summer show circuit in the Western New England Professional Horseman's Association. In this type of showing, there are no age limits and there are many different divisions to accommodate riders with various levels of experience. Our youngest rider participated in a lead-line class where all the riders are under eight years old, while we also had adult riders who competed in pleasure, flat, and jumping classes. Across the board, we have been so proud of our team, not just for their individual successes in the show ring, but also for their willingness to help out, to be supportive of each other, and to be patient and gracious no matter what the situation.  
 

In 2017, we formed our first IEA team for high-school aged riders. IEA is a national organization that allows riders to compete in reasonably priced shows under a set of rules similar to that used by many college teams. Riders are able to advance through a series of divisions and can earn points during the year toward Regional, Zone, and National Finals.
