The Brick Store Stables IEA team formed out of a need for those students who did not own a horse but wanted to horse show at a competitive level. Students ages range from 11-18. Middle and high school students in grades 6-12 compete against other students in their ability-grouped classes.
The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) focuses on opportunity for students at an economical level.
Allison Gresham, founder of the BSS IEA team has been an IEA coach for 10 years, and also serves as Zone 4, Region 1 co-chairman.
Each year BSS IEA students compete in 5 regular season point shows during the months of October- February. Since the onset of the team, numerous students have qualified for the post season competition and compete at the regional level. Several times- BSS students have competed at the Zone level, with competitors coming from all over the Southeast region.
