Adult Pilot Program


For Adult Riders Age 21 and Over

For the first time, IEA is rolling out an Adult Pilot Program for amateur riders ages 21 and older to participate in the IEA format during the 2022-2023 season. All adult riders must become a member of the IEA and be associated with an IEA coach. Adult rider members will participate as individual participants only and will not participate as part of a team. The Adult Pilot program includes Hunt Seat, Western and Dressage classes with three class options for each discipline.

Adult rider members will not be limited to the number of competitions they may participate in and unlike youth riders, points will not be earned and therefore no post-season competitions will be held after the regular season. Results of Adult Classes will be collected and posted on this webpage throughout the regular season during this initial Pilot year.

The Adult Pilot Program is optional for any returning IEA team.

The IEA 2022-2023 regular competition season runs August 2022 through May 2023, depending upon discipline. Adult rider applications are available on the IEA website on the Membership Page.
