Clear View Farm IEA Team

Interscholastic Equestrian Association:
The mission of IEA is to introduce students, ages 11 thru 19, to equestrian sports, develop an understanding and appreciation of equestrian sports thru organized student competitions with an emphasis on learning, sportsmanship and fun. The unique aspect of these competitions both at the local and national level, is that none of the riders will supply their own horses or tack. Instead, the horses, saddle and other tack are all provided to the students at the show. IEA students may have the opportunity to earn scholarships toward their college education. The IEA is an affiliate of the United States Equestrian Federation, the United States Hunter Jumper Association and the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association.

The Clear View Farm IEA Team is finishing its fourth year. We have 16 members who enjoy great comradery showing, learning and riding together. The team is very competitive and wins often including going to Nationals 2 years in a row.
