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”.

Important Update

It is with a heavy heart that we announce OCIEL’s 2020-2021 show season is cancelled. This decision was not made lightly. First and foremost, we are considering the health of all who participate in and attend our events. As Covid-19 cases currently continue to increase we cannot predict what the rates will be in September through the remainder of 2020. Second, we are challenged to find a way to incorporate team spirit and camaraderie into the shows due to social distancing requirements. School tenting and show spectating would not be allowed. Riders would come for their scheduled ride time and then be asked to leave upon completion of their class(es). Third, while some counties have reopened and are allowing horse shows, others are not granting approvals for shows to open. We know you plan these show weekends into your family and work calendars. Although it is still early in our show year, we wanted to provide you with sufficient notice of the cancellation instead of waiting each month to see if we would or would not be able to move forward.

We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 show season.

Wishing you and yours a healthy and safe 2020.
