The Shadow Run Farm Team is becoming a member of the Interscholastic Equestrian Team and is open to riders in grades 6th through 12th from any public or private school or home schooled riders. The Middle School Team is made up of riders in grades 6-8 and the Upper School Team is made up of riders in grades 9-12. At the beginning of the school year, each team starts with a goal of accumulating enough team points to make their regional playoff. Winning teams at Regions then move on to the Zone Finals. Teams take turns hosting horse shows throughout the season. The show season starts September 1 and ends in April at the National Finals.
IEA was formed and organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students. The mission of IEA is to introduce students in private and public middle and secondary schools to equestrian sports, to provide information concerning the creation and development of school associated equestrian programs, to develop understanding and appreciation of equestrian sports through organized student competitions, to provide students with organized competitive events and to provide additional equine educational opportunities. Currently, there are few opportunities for these students to earn scholarship money, through the IEA, students may have the opportunity to earn scholarships towards their college education.
