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


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
