What is IEA?
mission of the IEA is to introduce students in middle and high schools to
equestrian sports and to develop understanding and appreciation of equestrian
sports through organized competitions and educational opportunities. IEA offers
western, English and saddle seat disciplines.
What is Concord Equestrian Team? Concord Equestrian Team is a new western equestrian team competing on
the IEA circuit coached by Jessica Daniels. Team members will get the
opportunity to compete at the IEA shows representing Concord Equestrian Team in
horsemanship and reining. Members will have the opportunity to show without the
expense of owning for a horse.

are not currently taking lessons from Jessica you will need to take an
evaluation lesson (1 hour-$50) so that she can see your riding abilities. After
the evaluation lesson Jessica will be able to know what division of IEA you
will best be suited for. Practices are scheduled on an individual basis and
cost $35 per practice. Riders are
required to practice 4 times a month. If a rider cannot make their
scheduled lesson time that week a 24 hour notice must be given to avoid a $50
cancellation charge. Riders can ride twice in one week to meet their
requirement of 4 lessons a month. There will also be team practices which will
be discussed and scheduled at a later date. TEAM PRACTICES COUNT AS 2 LESSONS
FOR MEMBERS WHO DO NOT TAKE WEEKLY LESSONS AT CEC. Members must also stay in
good standing with their school. All members are required to help with the show
we host (date to be determined). We may also have to co-host with another team.
Details on the shows and when we have to co-host will be emailed out.
What does it cost? The first initial cost is $60 to become a member of IEA. Practices are
4 times a month and cost $35 a practice. We do have a package available, if you
buy 10 lessons for $290 you save $60, which is almost 2 free lessons! For the
shows, classes cost up to $40 and the members can show in up to 2 classes per
show. There is also a $50 coaches fee for the day of the show. If there is a
need for a hotel, the cost of the hotel, for the coach, will be split amongst
the members showing at that show. A majority of the shows are local and a hotel
is normally not needed. You will also have the expense of buying your show
clothes. Clothes will be discussed separately.
Where and When are the shows? A majority of the shows are held in Ohio for our zone (zone 5). We
have had shows at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Springfield, Ohio, Franklin
County Fairgrounds, Autumn Rose Farm (Dublin, Ohio), The University of Findlay
(Findlay, Ohio). We have travelled some out of state to show, such as Indiana.
The Show schedule for western for our zone has not been posted yet but could
start as early as November. Each rider works towards qualifying for regionals,
zones and then nationals. To qualify for regionals, they have to accumulate
points (15 for western and 18 for English) by showing at the shows. Each rider
can show up to 5 times per class to qualify. Details on the classes and
divisions are posted on rideiea.org. Shows are also posted on rideiea.org and
we are in zone 5.
What do you need to compete at the shows? Members will need to maintain a good standing at their school and with
Concord Equestrian team. They will also need show clothes. For Western Clothes
consist of a black western felt hat (clean and shaped), western shirt (will
have examples for unfamiliar riders), black or approved color chaps, and black
western boots. For English Clothes consist of Black or Dark Blue jacket, white
English shirt with collar, tan or beige breeches, black tall/field boots, black
English riding gloves, black show helmet. We have connections with local stores
to purchase these items. We will also be having a clothing meeting to see what
you have, see what you need and meet with our designer for those that want
custom shirts. All outfits must be clean, shaped, in good condition and approved
by Jessica. Members will not need to own a horse, have tack or horse equipment.
That is all provided by the team that is hosting the show. Riders that do not
meet their practice requirement for the month that the show is held in will not
be able to compete, as in school sports, you don’t go to school or practice you
How do the shows work? Once the member is placed in a division they will show in that
division and only compete with riders at their level. There are normally two
shows in one day (morning and afternoon) for western and English normally has 2
show, 1 Saturday and 1 Sunday. At the show, there is a group of horses that is
used for the competition; these horses are split into groups according to their
abilities as well. At the beginning of the show the coaches or exhibitors will
draw for which horse the exhibitors will show. Before their class the
exhibitors will mount their horse that was drawn for them. They are not given
any warm up time. You go in the arena and show. Horsemanship and Equitation classes
are based on the rider’s ability to stay in perfect position along with
controlling the horse and having the horse perform certain maneuvers. Reining
classes are judged the same way but adding a reining pattern. Over fence
classes are judged on how you handle and maneuver that horse around a jump
No need to own a horse to participate. Classes are
offered in four ability levels: beginner,
novice, intermediate, open. Any combination of ability levels on a team is
permissible, but it is advantageous to have at least one rider in every class
to be competitive as a team. Riders in grades 6-8 are eligible for Middle
School Teams while riders in grade 9-12 compete at the High School level.
Points are tracked for individual rider accomplishments
AND for overall, team accomplishments. Individuals and teams earn points to
qualify for regional, zone and national finals.
Teams take turns hosting horse shows throughout the
season. New teams are NOT required to host any shows. Second year teams are
required to co-host at least one show. Teams in their Third year or additional
years must host one show or co-host two shows per year.
The competition season starts September 1st and ends at
the National Finals. Hunt Seat National Finals are in April. Western National
Finals are in June.
Students ride horses that are furnished by the host barn
and chosen by random draw. The use of personal tack is not allowed and limited
schooling is permitted. This equalizes competition variables and tests the
horsemanship of the contestants.
