University of Richmond Equestrian Team

Haverhill farm is pleased to be hosting the University of Richmond Equestrian Team for the sixth year in a row for the 2017-2018 season!

The University of Richmond Equestrian Team is an official Sports Club that is sanctioned and partially funded by the University. The hard work of riders past and present resulted in the University elevating the team to Championship level in Fall 2011. The team itself is co-ed, with an average of 20 members, some having competed since high school or earlier and others having only recently discovered the joys of riding.  Riders have the option to show or just ride for fun, and riders of all levels are encouraged to join, as points from beginners to open (highest level) go towards the team’s overall standing!

Haverhill IEA Team

IEA, or Interscholastic Equestrian Association, was formed and organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students.  For more information on IEA, check out their websiteat

IEA shows are very different from regular shows.  At IEA shows, the rider will not know the horse they are riding!  You draw a horse, get on, and show!  Riders that jump are able to school two fences.  In order to prepare riders, lessons in which IEA riders are riding will likely switch horses, and riders that are planning to show must attend a practice sesssion at Haverhill once a month.
