High School Equestrians
I know there are a lot of trainers with younger students and parents of young riders who visit this site, and maybe this is old news to you guys, but I just came across some information today that you might find useful.
First of all, USEF apparently offers a program for high school equestrian athletes to letter in equestrian. A quote from USEF’s website: “The new High School Equestrian Athlete program is open to equestrian athletes in all breeds or disciplines who are enrolled in grades 9-12, and are currently USEF members, or become USEF members. The program will run June 1–May 31 of each year, and will honor those who document their training and competition involvement by awarding emblems and pins.” For more information and an application form, click here.
Also, did you know there’s an Interscholastic Equestrian Association? I didn’t, but then again I don’t have kids. All the current information on the website talks mostly about Hunt Seat and Western programs, but apparently they’ve added a Saddle Seat division. For more information on that (unless you can find it on the IEA site), check this out.
