Penrose Farm supports both a middle school and high school (IEA) Interscholastic Equestrian Association hunt-seat competition team. Coached by Christen Khym, the members lesson together and compete as both individuals and teams at IEA competitions.
Fashioned to lead riders into IHSA college competition, IEA competition is based on the level of the rider and includes beginner through the open level of competition. Each member accumulates points toward the next level based on show results. Team points are earned through show points earned by the designated point rider at each level.
As with IHSA, the host team provides all competition horses for the event and riders must rider their assigned mount without the advantage of practice or schooling.
