IEA & The Wedding!

Next Saturday September 3 at 12p.m. noon we would like to have an informational meeting about the new Interscholastic Equestrian Association Program that we are offering to all middle and high school students as the the Prestige Training Equestrian Team!  We will take all students that are interested and there will be no tryouts for this new team since everyone will be eligible to compete.  The season starts in November and we will be able to pick the competitions we wish to participate in!  You will be able to sign up on line after the meeting and more details to follow!
Below is a forwarded email from the Interscholastic Equestrian Association concerning our team application and a “Call to Action!” for all who wish to participate this season.  We need all interested middle and high school candidates to complete their applications a.s.a.p. in order for our team to be accepted!  The I.EA. email below outlines the process.  If you are seriously interested please go ahead and complete the application and the additional required forms right away.   Please  let us know when you have done so.  We still will have an informational meeting next Saturday at noon to answer any detailed questions you might have.  Thank you in advance for your diligence in this matter!
