West Forsyth High SchoolEquestrian Team
The Equestrian Team at West Forsyth High School is committed to providing student athletes with education in equine sports, organized competitive opportunities, and preparation to advance to collegiate competition. By partnering with the national Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA), we promote the common interest of safe riding instruction and competition and education on matters related to the horse industry and all segments thereof.
Members of the WFHS Equestrian Team show at 5 certified IEA shows per year with the opportunity to qualify for regional, zone, and national competitions. The WFHS Team has had riders qualify for the National show, and has had riders qualify for college scholarships. Past West Forsyth Equestrian Team graduates have gone on to join collegiate equestrian teams such as Auburn and University of Georgia.
No experience or horse ownership is required. Additionally, at WFHS we encourage our athletes to achieve excellence in academics and character, as well as good horsemanship.
