Our team has a great time learning about riding, competing and has great camaraderie !

Our team is hosted by East Coast Equestrian Training Center. This great team is comprised of students in grades 4 through 12, from public and private schools throughout the area! ECIEA competes in the hunt seat against other local IEA lteams, and then against the regional teams and then the national teams! We are part of Zone 3 (Virginia, North Carolina) Region 5.

Don't own a horse? No problem! Horses and tack are provided when you ride as a team member of the ECIEA!

Our team members are also eligible to compete for the IEA scholarship awards which can be zone specific, or founders scholarships.

The ECIEA is a non-profit and welcomes sponsors who can provide the assistance to our young team members who learn the opportunity to be competitive and to ride horses along with the opportunity for educational rewards. If you would like to sponsor our young riders, please contact us!

Our team members also participate in fund raising throughout the year and appreciates your support!
