Triumphant weekend for Madeira IEA team

October 6, 2014

On Saturday, October 4, the Madeira equestrian program hosted a successful VHSA associate show on campus. Riders and spectators alike enjoyed a beautiful fall day. Madeira riders finished the day-long event with many ribbons. 

Early Sunday, the team packed up to travel to Foxcroft School for their first IEA competition of the season where they continued the previous day’s success. The Snails showed great school spirit both inside the ring and out, cheering each other on to win high point team champions.

“We are so proud of our riders for their amazing weekend,” said Director of Equestrian Programs Ian McCartney. “We are looking forward to seeing all that they can accomplish this year.”

The Snails will be back in action this weekend at the W.B.T.A. Horse Show in Chevy Chase. View the fall schedule >>
