IEA holds the safety of its riders in the highest regard. Through the sanctioning of horse shows, IEA aims to provide a playing field that is both level and safe. New requirements related to SafeSport education were recently implemented for IEA Board Members, Staff, and Zone Administrators, in addition to their required background checks.
IEA Coaches are invited to attend the 2022 Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) International Conference on October 20-22, 2022 at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN (near Nashville). IEA is proud to partner with CHA on this year’s conference.
IEA coaches receive the CHA Member Discount (and the early bird discount if you register early!)
Each year the IEA offers assistance to our members through programs funded through the IEA Benevolent Fund. The Financial Assistance Program offers aid to incoming rider members who require help financing their IEA competition. The Coaches Assistance Grant offers financial assistance to our member Coaches in their time of need.
A Referral Program has been implemented that will compensate you for all your hard work!
