Do I need to be on an Interscholastic Equestrian Association team to ride in college? I’ve been showing my whole life but have never done IEA. Do you have any tips (as a freshman in highschool)?

Absolutely not. I'm a freshman and riding on an IEA team, but it isn't necessary for college, although you can win scholarships and things like that from doing well at nationals. Personally I think it's a lot of fun and very interesting to ride many different horses though.
