Congratulations to our IEA Team on a fantastic weekend at Zone 1 Finals!!!

Congratulations to Melissa on qualifying for Nationals in Individual Intermediate Over Fences and Riley for qualifying for Nationals in Individual Future Beginner!!! What an amazing accomplishment!

We had a great show of support from parents and teammates. Every time a CMS rider finished a course or placed the whole arena knew about it!!! Nice cheering ladies!!

It was ribbons galore this weekend but one of the things I am proudest of is that our very own Sofia finished second in the Horsemanship Test!!! It was so nice to see all of our riders show such enthusiasm in their horsemanship knowledge and their support of each other. I especially loved our two ribbon winners in Individual Future Novice Flat hugging each other immediately after receiving their ribbons!

Fun @ the CMS Banquet!!

It was a fun evening filled with ribbons, yummy mexican food, and dancing! See the CMS series points page for final results!
