ABOUT THE IEA/USHJA CORE CLINIC
The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) has joined in partnership with the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) to create a new clinic series that will offer enhanced opportunities to educate students in grades 6-12 about horsemanship and riding in a draw-based (catch-ride) format.
The IEA/USHJA Clinic is be based on a model that is similar to the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program (EAP), and will include instruction and testing in stable management and equine care as well as mounted riding instruction. Mounted instruction will emphasize draw-based/catch-riding techniques as well as general instruction on equitation and riding skills.
Half of the riding spots for the clinic will be allocated to USHJA active members (and/or Intercollegiate members) and the other Half of the riding spots to USHJA Scholastic Members (members of IEA AND USHJA) who compete in the IEA at the Intermediate or Open level. Auditing will be free to any IEA or USHJA members, but must be reserved in advance with the host site. Non-members will be charged a fee for auditing. Clinics will potentially be web-cast for IEA/USHJA member auditing purposes as well.
You can bring a horse to participate in the clinic with the understanding that your horse will be entered into the catch riding group of horses provided by Jamaica Bay Riding Academy.
