The Atlantic Intercollegiate Equestrian League was developed to give Maritime university students an opportunity to participate in equestrian sport with like-minded students while studying at school. The goal of our league is to allow students a way to continue riding and competing without the same time and financial commitments that are normally required for the sport. AIEL shows occur 3 times per semester and each school takes turn hosting the competition at a variety of facilities around the province. The league is open to riders of all skill levels; offering hunt seat equitation classes that range from walk-trot to open over fences. Horses are kindly donated by the host barns and riders compete on mounts that they have not previously ridden. The AIEL is student-run and is made up of teams representing each participating university. Although shows are a competition between rival schools, we foster a sense of camaraderie at the shows with everyone pitching in where necessary and cheering on both their teammates and competitors! We rely on our Executive Team, comprised of students from each school for the overall management of the league.
