Join in the Excitement

The Orange County Interscholastic Equestrian League is a publicly supported non-profit corporation operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, to foster regional and national amateur equestrian sports competition. The primary goals and objectives of the League are to encourage a knowledge of horsemanship, stable management, equine anatomy and physiology and to promote teamwork in a fair and friendly competition with the young riders from K thru 12 th grade. The League encourages and supports the efforts of those students and their parents at public and private schools who have made a commitment to the sport. The League promotes the sport as an ”Interscholastic Team Activity”.

Changes for the 2021-22 Show Season

We are so excited to be back! The OCIEL 2021-2022 show season is going forward with a few changes.

Western: At this time the Western Divisions, with the exception of Gymkhana, have been cancelled. If you or your team are interested in having the Western Divisions return, please reach out to OCIEL Management. If there is enough commitment we will be able to bring these back.

Dressage & Gymkhana: Dressage & Gymkhana Divisions will take place on Sundays only. 

Entries: Entries are due 10 days before the start of the show weekend. Payment is due in full the Tuesday before the start of the show and may be made by check or credit card (Visa/ Mastercard).
