Interschool equestrian competition in Victoria runs in several streams, as set out below.

VICTORIAN EQUESTRIAN INTERSCHOOL SERIES

The Victorian Equestrian Interschool Series, or VEIS, is a series of dressage, show jumping and combined training events run by schools across the state, including a Grand Final event at Werribee in July.

There are three regional competitions within this series - Barwon, Northern and South East - and the series provides a pathway to the national championships for dressage and show jumping.
