The Interscholastic Equestrian League allows junior high and high school equestrians to represent their schools in four competitions during the school year. The students compete in hunters, equitation, jumpers and dressage.

The students compete and acquire points individually and for their school. The Interscholastic Equestrian League invites representatives from colleges around the country to attend the competitions, meet the riders and present opportunities for riding and competing while attending college.

Riders can be recruited by colleges for IEL or NCAA competitions. College applications can be flagged by college riding instructors, giving the applicant an edge in the application process. Riders are also given information about riding scholarships that they are eligible to apply for.

Interested students should contact their local competitive show barn or ask their school representatives about membership in IEL.

For more information at the following high schools, contact:
Valencia High School - Faye Valentine at
Hart High - Michelle Moore at
Saugus HS - Howard siegel at
West Ranch HS - Suzanne Van Amberg at
Rio Norte JHS - Chad Powell at

Deadline for membership is Oct. 1. The first IEL competition of the season is Oct. 25.
