Double R has recently added an Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Team. The team is currently for high school students grades 9-12 who are interested in showing. There is an opportunity for middle school riders as well if we get more interest. Through IEA you don't need to own a horse, or even tack for that matter. Show up, a horse is assigned to you and go in the ring. There are height and weight restrictions for safety, but IEA showing is the luck of the draw. It is based on collegiate horse showing, IHSA. IEA evaluates riders on strictly equitation, how your position looks on the horse as well as being effective.
A minimum of 3 riders is required to start a team. We've had a lot of interest and many of our own riders but we are always welcoming new students!
