Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team
"Lauren has given our talented riders the skills to be thoughtful and confident in the ring. She instills the importance of sportsmanship, horsemanship and teamwork in all of her students and does a great job motivating the team. Lauren's commitment to NVET is obvious and it shines through in all of her students." -- Emma Bernstein- Team Captain
The Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team is Harmony Horse Stables’ Interscholastic competition team that shows throughout the school year from Sept-May. Riders on the NVET team compete in the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) and the Athletic Equestrian League (AEL). Both of these competitive organizations focus on a rider’s ability to exhibit quality equitation on the flat and over fences while riding unfamiliar horses.
The team is a fantastic way to riders to experience the excitement of traveling to horse shows without the larger financial commitments of traditional showing. Riders develop their confidence through successfully riding the horses that the host barn provides.
Team members earn points for themselves to qualify to Regionals, Zones, and Nationals as well as earning points for the team to qualify as a whole. The Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team has qualified for regionals and zones for IEA, and won third place at the national championships for AEL in 2017.
If you have not competed as an equitation rider before, no problem! We strongly believe that any rider can be successful
on the Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team, regardless of the discipline they regularly ride in. Contact us today to find out how you can make the transition to the Nashoba Valley Equestrian Team!

"Kathryn always finds creative and fun ways to stimulate her riders. She is really skilled at teaching riders to ride any horse, in any situation. Kathryn not only helped me to become a more competitve rider, but also inspired me to work harder and chase my passion." --Lauren Powtak
