Friday at 1:00, parents are invited to come watch "pony games," which will exhibit skills that the riders will learn throughout the week, in a fun and competitive format.



The final day will incorporate a mini dressage IEA show, where riders will be judged and scored on their dressage tests, and will practice for DSE classes. The mini show will be followed by a parent informational meeting about joining our IEA dressage team.



On the Thursday of the Quadrille Session, the students will perform the quadrille that they will have practiced all week. Parents are encouraged to attend the quadrille performance! Alaina will let everyone know what time to be there for the performance.




BEGINNER/NOVICE WEEKS: Each day begins at 9:00am. Please be 15 minutes early *on the first day* so we can take care of registration. You may pick your student up between 2:00-2:30pm at the end of each day. There will be a $25 fee per day for students picked up after 3:00pm.


DRESSAGE IEA WEEK *AND* CROSSRAIL/SHOW PREP WEEK: Monday and Tuesday are 12:00-4:00; Wednesday is 12:00 - dark; Thursday will be 7:00am-2:00pm. Wednesday will end with dinner, s'mores, and a campout; Thursday morning, participants will "show prep" horses, in practice for the show season, then will do a mock horse show at 1:00 for parents to come watch. An IEA PARENT MEETING will immediately follow the mock Dressage IEA show (June 15, 2023)!


QUADRILLE/DRESSAGE WEEK: Each day is 1:00-4:00. The first half of each day will be in a "classroom" setting, and the second half will be riding and practicing quadrilles. If we have enough people to split into 2 groups, riders will swap off between riding and "classroom" time.
