IEA Announces WESTERN Virtual Horse Show

IEA is thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for all current IEA Western riders and coaches with our WESTERN VIRTUAL HORSE SHOW hosted American Paint Horse Association (APHA) E-Shows.

As you are probably aware, digital or virtual horse shows have been popping up everywhere since the beginning of the pandemic. For many equestrians, they have opened the door to competition and practice opportunities where regular in-person shows have been cancelled.

The IEA Western Virtual Show is an opportunity for IEA members to participate in the individual Horsemanship and Reining classes that they are placed in for this current IEA season. (Note: Horsemanship classes will include a brief rail portion and a pattern.)

APHA has put together all the information on registering for this virtual show.

  • Classes are $35 each.
  • Registration Opens on November 15 and Closes on December 13 at 5PM (CST – Central Standard Time)
  • Registration and Videos are uploaded at the same time.
  • Judging will take place in December
  • Placings will be announced in IEA communications and social media before December 25, 2020.

Note: This is not an IEA point show. It is an educational opportunity for riders to receive scores and feedback from the judge.
