Please congratulate the varsity equestrian team on their very successful IEA Regional competition. The team has worked so hard all year to prepare for this event. The team competition was a hard fought battle and they tied for second place. This is the best the varsity team has ever done in the team competition! In addition to the team success, we had three riders who placed well enough in their individual classes to move on to IEA Zone Finals. The students moving on to Zones Finals are Leila Smith '21, Marisa Kalafer '20, and Olivia Hansbury '21. Zones Finals will take place March 30-31 at Swan Lake Stable in Littlestown, PA. In addition to showing, the team also brought four George School horses that were used in the competition. The students worked together to make sure these horses looked their best for the big day. Below are the final standings for each rider in both team and individual competitions.
