IEA  The IEA was formed to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction for students in grades 6-12. #IEAfinals


HORSEMANSHIP PROGRAM 2017-18 is officially underway! The IEA horsemanship program (IEAHP) is open to any youth in grades four through 12 who is either a junior contributing member, or a rider member. Build your horsemanship knowledge through a set of nine quizzes and a final quiz in June. Participants who complete all quizzes and receive 75% or better on the final quiz will receive a commemorative shirt as well as the certificate of completion and a charm. Junior contributing membership is $35 per year and rider membership is $15. Rider members are those that have already paid their $60 annual membership to participate in the IEA. Quizzes are emailed to members once they have completed the application for the Horsemanship Program. For more information please contact Jennifer Eaton at jenn@rideiea.org or visit rideiea.org. #rideiea #IEAHP

Want to show off your business or products to thousands of equestrians across the US while helping a great cause? IEA is hosting our second annual online auction on November 9-12, 2017. In addition, we are hosting a silent auction in April 2018 during the IEA Hunt Seat National Finals in Syracuse, NY.
We are soliciting items for either (or both) auctions-everything from art, jewelry, horse gear, rider gear, summer camps, gift baskets, gift certificates, travel destinations, lesson packages, and more. All donors will be recognized in multiple ways leading up to the auctions including the IEA website, Take The Reins magazine, e-news letters, press releases, the 2018 Hunt Seat National Finals program, and on the online auction website. Proceeds from both auctions will benefit the IEA Benevolent Fund, a resource for IEA coaches and riders in financial need. DEADLINE FOR DONATING TO THE ONLINE AUCTION IS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31. For more details, contact Kimber at kimber@rideiea.org.

Congratulations to MICHAEL GOLINOWSKI on winning the 2017 IEA National Sportsmanship Award! The national award winner is selected from a group of riders who earned a Sportsmanship Award at a local, regional or zone IEA show during the 2016 2017 season. These winners were then invited to submit an application for the National Sportsmanship Award. The student-riders submitted a resume, composed a 250-word essay explaining how horses and/or equestrian competition have influenced her/his life and three letters of recommendation. There were 118 applications received this year. Michael received a $500 scholarship from the IEA, a lifetime membership to the IEA and a nomination by the IEA to affiliate sportsmanship award programs. The IHSA awarded Golinowski a keeper trophy and his name engraved on a perpetual sportsmanship award trophy. Also receiving a $500 scholarship as the highest ranking Senior is Alexandra Prymek from Shreveport, Louisiana who rides for Hidden Acres Equestrian Center. #rideiea
