The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) is a non-profit organization that was created to promote equestrian competition and instruction. The Delaware Valley College IEA Team is open to all middle and high school riders who can walk, trot, and canter independently on an unfamiliar horse. Students in our program will have the opportunity to lesson on college-owned horses and compete at local IEA shows in hunt seat equitation. At IEA shows, riders only have a brief warm-up on a horse supplied by the hosting team before competing over fences or on the flat. Riders accumulate points at each show to qualify individually or as a team for post season competitions such as regionals, zones, and nationals.

Students on the Delaware Valley College IEA Team will improve their equitation on the flat and over fences, as well as enhance their teamwork skills by working with other riders to develop a competitive riding team. Riders will develop the skills necessary for competing successfully at the IEA level. Riders may only compete in five IEA shows per year to qualify for post-season competitions. Throughout those five shows the riders will earn points towards their individual qualifications for regional finals Riders will assist in organizing and hosting IEA competitions at the college as well as organizing fundraising events. The IEA is a great way to prepare riders for intercollegiate riding and even offers several scholarships!
