About the RIEC

2021 marks the 40th year for the Rhode Island Equitation Championships (as the 2020 finals was canceled due to COVID). Started in 1980 as a Mini-Medal equitation championship class at a regular rated show, the "RI Finals" has grown over the years and is now its own premier event that includes medal finals for not only the Mini-Medal riders but Adults, Juniors and Modified Adult riders as well, and now 2-foot and Long/Short Stirrup classes.

The show has been held on grass at Glen Farm in Portsmouth, RI; on grass at the University of Rhode Island's Peckham Farm in Kingston; back again at Glen Farm in Portsmouth in their new sand arena, then at Heritage Farm Equestrian Center, and now at the meticulously kept Tibri. Each venue holds its own special memories.

CONTINUED for 2021!!! The RIEC and RIHA are thrilled to announce that the 2021 RI Equitation Championships will be held again at Tibri, in Chepachet, RI. We extend our gratitude to the Dotoli and Pieters family on opening up their farm to our cherished finals. We are looking forward to a wonderful finals this year.

CONTINUED for 2021!!! The RI Finals will again be held over 2 days! Day 1 will include a Short/Long Stirrup finals and a 2' division finals. The only qualification to ride the Short/Long Stirrup or the 2' finals is to be a RIHA member. The Adult Modifieds and the minis will also move to Day 1. Day 2 will be the Adult and Junior 3-foot divisions AND the Master's Class (for all Champion and Reserve Champion Alumni).

Given our success the last few years, we are very excited for this year's finals. Each year will be better than the last!

Good luck qualifying and see you at the show!
