Junior Equitation League (JEL)

The National Capitol Junior Equestrian League (JEL) provides an opportunity for beginner riders to be a viable part of a team, promote the art of equitation, and establish horsemanship skills and a solid foundation to hunter jumper equitation.

National Capitol Short Stirrup Equitation League (NCSSEL)

The National Short Stirrup Equestrian League (NCSSEL) provides an opportunity for novice junior riders to enhance their existing riding skills and prepare themselves for growth in the equine competitive sports.

National Capitol Equitation League (NCEL)

The National Capital Equitation League (NCEL) is comprised of riding schools throughout Maryland and Virginia, giving riders an option to stay competitive during  winter season. Teams compete at member riding facilities from October through March in a series of meets patterned after the intercollegiate leagues.

National Capitol Adult Equestrian League (NCAEL)

The National Capitol Adult Equestrian League (NCAEL) provides an opportunity for adult riders to be a viable part of a team, promote the art of equitation, foster competition and camaraderie, as well as encourage social functions centered around equestrian activities. Good sportsmanship and no stress competition atmosphere will  be emphasized.

Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA)

For student equestrians in grades 4-12. There is no need for any rider to own a horse because competition horses are provided at each venue to the contestant. Instead, the host team arranges for the horses and equipment. Since the horse is new to the rider, the scores are based upon horsemanship and equitation. All disciplines offer a variety of ability levels from beginner through advanced.
