Started in 2016, the Cavallo Farm team has found great success in IEA. The team is under the guidance and training of head trainer, Ally Topor. Every rider on the team is encouraged to take regular lessons in addition to the weekly mandatory team group practice. In these group practices, riders get used to the draw format of shows by riding many different types of horses.
WHAT IS IEA?
IEA stands for the Interscholastic Equestrian Association, which provides individual and team competition to riders in grades 6-12. There is no need for the rider to own their own horse, as horses are provided by each competition venue. The IEA give students have the opportunity to earn scholarships toward their college education through awards in competition and through sportsmanship activities.
