Interschool aims to develop the individual through the discipline of equestrian sport.  To achieve this aim the four main objectives of Interschool are:

  • To promote equitation education and equestrian sport in school programs across South Australia;

  • To provide a competition structure that will give opportunities for South Australian Interschool riders a platform to progress from grass roots level to a National level with the aim of developing excellence in equestrian sport;

  • To encourage the development of discipline, character, sportsmanship, teamwork and a sense of achievement in Interschool riders in South Australia; and

  • To reward and educate riders in horsemanship and horse management with the aim of creating a competitive sporting environment that places the welfare of the horse at the fore. 


National Rules and Information: for all disciplines can be found on EA National website under 'Sports'
