This session of camp is for riders who are interested in exploring the IEA Show Team. Students must be entering Middle School through High School. Riders must be able to Walk, Trot, and Canter on their own as well as be able to tack up their horse by themselves.
This camp will be broken into two groups of six: a "Walk/Trot/Canter" group and a "Walk/Trot/Canter/Jump" group.
Please bring lunch for each day of camp.
