IEA@CONGRESS WESTERN SHOW

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2021

OHIO STATE FAIRGROUNDS & EXPO CENTER
COLISEUM – COLUMBUS, OH

717 E 17th Ave, Columbus, OH 43211

PARKING AT THE CONGRESS:

While admission to the Quarter Horse Congress is free, every vehicle must pay for parking. A $25 day pass gets you on the grounds one-time. If you leave, you have to re-pay.  A $75 pass allows you to go in and out the entire month of Congress. 

$75 pass holders may park anywhere on the fairgrounds there is availability.  $25 pass holders may be restricted to parking that is farther away – depending on availability.  ALL IEA participants should mention to gate attendants that they are EXHIBITORS of the IEA horse show and need to be close to the Coliseum. It is a good idea to carpool whenever possible.

Program Ads & Sponsorships

In order for IEA to be able to provide outstanding opportunities like the Congress show to our riders, we must find additional ways to cover the added costs of a horse show of this magnitude. Not only is this a wonderful opportunity for our riders, it is a fantastic opportunity for IEA to promote our organization to literally thousands of Congress attendees and vendors.
 

SPONSORSHIPS STILL AVAILABLE:

  • Horse Sponsorship – $100 Horsemanship Horse; $160 Reining Horse
  • Class Sponsorship – $300 (Great for businesses.)
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
Proceeds from all sales and sponsorships benefit the IEA Western Zone.

No one works harder at an IEA show than our beloved IEA horses and ponies.  We are so grateful for them (and their human providers) and we want to make sure they receive plenty of well-deserved treats during this show.

Thank you to Bowling Green State University (BGSU) Equestrian Team for Sponsoring the IEA@Congress Pony Bar!  What a great way to give back to our 4-legged friends.
