Affinity Equestrian – Hosted Show Information
We will begin hosting IEA shows beginning in the 2017/2018 season at Affinity Equestrian so stay tuned for additional event information.
About the IEA
IEA Competition Format
The unique aspect of the competitions, both at the local and national level, is that none of the riders will supply their own horses or tack. Instead, the host team arranges for the horses and equipment. Since the horse is new to the rider, the scores are based upon horsemanship and equitation. All disciplines offer a variety of ability levels from beginner through advanced. The IEA has set guidelines for the placement of new riders entering the IEA to allow for the unique program format of riding an unfamiliar horse.
