We are pleased to introduce the Oak Grove Farm IEA team for high school and middle school pupils.

For student equestrians in grades 6-12, the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) was established in the spring of 2002. A non-profit organization, the IEA now has over 8,000 members in 32 states across North America. There is no need for any rider to own a horse because competition horses are provided at each venue to the contestant. At Oak Grove Farm we concentrate on the hunt seat aspect of IEA competition. Students have the opportunity to earn scholarships toward their college education through awards in competition and through sportsmanship activities.

The unique aspect of the competitions, both at the local and national level, is that none of the riders will supply their own horses or tack. Instead, the host team arranges for the horses and equipment. Since the horse is new to the rider, the scores are based upon horsemanship and equitation. All disciplines offer a variety of ability levels from beginner through advanced.

The deadline for joining the Oak Grove IEA team for the upcoming year is November 1st 2014. Please contact Amber at 270 392 4646 if you would like to find out more about our IEA program and what it entails.
