Smoke Tree IEA Team

The IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) is a nation-wide organization that was founded to give school students, who do not own horses, a chance to be able to compete at horse shows and to create a more team like atmosphere among Stables. The Smoke Tree IEA Team was established in 2010. We highly value our team spirit, and strive to include everyone in our IEA activities.
For more information visit Interscholastic Equestrian Association.


During the summer months, we offer beginner through advanced equestrian camps. For a week, campers spend time (9am - 1pm) experiencing horses through riding lessons, horsemanship clinics, stable management, games, activities, and most importantly fun. Please see our Around the Paddock blog for current information, dates and registration forms for our equestrian camps. Summer Riding Program Brochure
