IEA Madeira Interscholastic Equestrian Association team

Competitive middle school riders in our middle school program receive the same, expert coaching given to our high school riders. (Learn more about our equestrian staff.) Lessons are primarily focused on students riding on our middle school IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) team. Lessons are grouped based on the level a student would show at an IEA horse show. Middle school lessons are intended for serious, young equitation riders with prior experience.

To apply, please submit an interest form. We are currently accepting applications for the spring riding semester.
