Welcome to the Milton Eagles Equestrian Team website.  Our talented group of athletes are a group of individuals brought together by their love of horses and competition.  They ride at the beautiful Fortitude Farm (at Yellow House Farm) facilities in Milton.

Our Equestrian Team is a highly competitive, club sports team that competes in hunt seat over fences and flat in Zone 4, Region 11 of Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA).  Riding within IEA provides the opportunity for riders of all skills to compete individually and as a team. Each season, riders compete in five shows as part of the regular season, which runs from August through April.  As riders place, they earn individual and team points to qualify for Regional, Zone, and National finals -- and to move up in divisions. Our Milton Eagles Red Team has consistently qualified for Regional and Zone Finals, and they have also placed among the top 10 teams at Nationals.   We can’t wait to see what this upcoming year has in store for us!
