No rider needs to own a horse. Horses are provided by team for practice before competitions.
Riders in grades 6-8 are eligible for Middle School Teams while riders in grade 9-12 compete at the High School level.
Points are tracked for individual rider accomplishments AND for overall, team accomplishments. Individuals and teams earn points to qualify for regional, zone and national finals.
Teams take turns hosting horse shows throughout the season. The competition season starts September 1st and ends at the National Finals in late spring/early summer.
Students ride horses that are furnished by the host barn and chosen by random draw. The use of personal tack is not allowed and limited schooling is permitted. This equalizes competition variables and tests the horsemanship of the contestants.
The North Louisiana Equestrian Team welcomes riders from across the North Louisiana area! Contact us for more information regarding team try-outs for the 2017 team!
