A Typical Show Day:
IEA shows typically begin around 7:30am with a horse warm up and course walk. High School riders and over fence classes typically show first with Middle School following.
Coaches are provided with horse descriptions and selected draws for each rider.
Riders should be fully dressed and ready several classes before their own. This gives ample time to watch the horses (especially your draw), strategize ahead of the ride and prepare.
When your class is ready to show all horses are tacked and provided to each rider by a handler. Riders should thank the handler and pat the horse after their ride! 

Show day is FUN - it's a great time to spend with your fellow riders and team! Enjoy the ride!
