A Day in the Life with the USEA Interscholastic Eventing League

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The new USEA Interscholastic Eventing League (IEL) is in its first year and this new program has welcomed 83 teams. Recently, the IEL teams participated in an IEL social media video contest by submitting creative videos that represent a day in the life of an IEL team member.

Several videos were submitted for a chance to be featured on the USEA social media. The USEA enjoyed all the videos, but the winner with the most creative video was Between the Flags Eventing Team of Area II. The runner-up was Rollins Johnson Equestrian Team of Area VI and rounding out the top three was Team L’Esprit Equestrian of Area IV.

Thank you to all the teams who participated in the IEL video contest!

About the USEA Interscholastic Eventing League

In August 2020, the USEA Board of Governors approved the creation of the USEA Interscholastic Eventing League (IEL) as an official program of the USEA. The mission of IEL is to bring together junior riders who are in the 7-12th grade and provide a supportive community through which students can continue to pursue their riding interests. A group of junior members in the 7th-12th grade who share a common bond (same barn, same school, same Pony Club, etc.) register with the USEA as an interscholastic team.
