Welcome to My Serenity Farms IEA Team.The mission of IEA is to introduce students in private and public middle and secondary schools to equestrian sports, 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. Through the IEA, students may also have the opportunity to earn scholarships towards their college education.
How It Works
The IEA was founded on the principle that any middle school or high school student should be able to participate in horse shows, regardless of their financial status or riding level.The IEA attempts to eliminate the expenses of students owning horses and allows more students to compete. Students ride horses that are furnished by the host barn and chosen by drawing lots.The use of personal tack is not allowed and only schooling over fences is permitted. This equalizes the competition and tests the horsemanship of the contestants.Classes range from walk/trot/canter for first year students to the Open Division for the more experienced riders.
The Competition Process
Zone 4 hosts high school and middle school teams throughout the southeast. In order to make the competitions manageable, we are divided into georgraphic regions. We currently have eight regions. At the beginning of the school year, each team starts with a goal of accumulating enough team points (20) to make their regional playoff. Winning teams at Region Finals then move on to the Zone Finals.
