IEA Educational Guides & Videos

To facilitate questions during membership season, IEA is pleased to announce the “JUST ASK JENN” Series – a weekly informal round-table Q&A Zoom meeting that coaches, show hosts, and Adult Members can count on each week at the same time and Zoom Link.
Jenn (or sometimes special guests) will be available to answer whatever show hosting, team-related questions you might have. You can submit questions ahead of time, or just log-in to the Zoom and chat with Jenn in a relaxed group setting.
Either way, it is a great resource – especially for new and potential coaches. Kind of like sitting around the kitchen table with a friend.
MONDAYS beginning JULY 31, 2023 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm EST. No RSVP necessary. Log on anytime during that hour.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Parent's Guide to the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (Published 2014)

by Amanda Garner

The horse draw, warm-up jumps, re-rides, what to wear, what not to wear… Finally, a book is available that explains the inner workings of the IEA. Ms. Garner draws from her years of IEA stewarding to provide the information new IEA members need in clear, concise language that any non-horse parent can understand.

Praise for “A Parent’s Guide to the Interscholastic Equestrian Association:” 

This book will become the parent’s guide to everything that is wonderful about the IEA. The author has covered all of the required information in a very parent – friendly way, I recommend riders read this as well – it should become a ‘must read’ for all IEA members.” -Simon Towns, IEA Zone 4 Administrator. 

Love this book! A concise and easy-to-understand guide, it’s everything you and your rider need to know for a fun and successful IEA experience. I wish I had this book years ago when my daughter was beginning her IEA journey!” -Wendy Benevides, IEA Parent.
