About Us

American Equestrian  School  (AES) — a highly selective accelerated Private School Program for students passionate about  the equestrian industry — is now accepting applications for grades 6 -12.

Our program is the first of its kind to link a world-class Hybrid Private School tailored to students’ passion for the equestrian world.  AES utilizes the award winning Impact Learning model from the ICL Academy as its academic core,  combined with exclusive equestrian college level content and dynamic learning opportunities with icons of the sport, including interactive in-person seminars with industry experts.  ICL Academy is an affiliate partner of the internationally renowned IB World School Group, The Dwight Schools. A 150 year tradition of academic excellence combined with the Institute for Civic Leadership’s lauded character and service leadership program, as well as a robust virtual and in person focus on all things equestrian, make this innovative program essential for elite equestrians.

The Program Director for AES is Professor Piper Klemm, Ph.D., who currently teaches college courses on equestrian entrepreneurship at Clarkson University and runs the renowned industry publication, The Plaid Horse. Bringing their decades of experience producing top horses and riders to teach in an academic arena are Traci and Carleton Brooks. The Brooks’ Balmoral Farm is one of the winningest equestrian programs in North America, continually producing a long list of National Champions. Carleton is an inductee of the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame, the USHJA Hall of Fame, and the winner of the overall 2020 USEF Horse of the Year with Pritchard Hill.
