The Wakefield Equestrian Sports Program (WESP) provides school horses, coaching, and a riding facility for students in grades 6 through 12 who are interested in pursuing an education in English hunt seat riding.
The team competes at shows organized by the International Equestrian Association (IEA), which also provides horses for competition. As a result, students are not required to have their own horses to participate in practices or shows.

This program provides preparation for collegiate riding as many colleges offer an IEA equivalent program called the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) as well as a companion program called the National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA). As a result, riders who distinguish themselves in Wakefield Equestrian through the IEA have the opportunity to be noticed by collegiate riding programs.
