The Sonoma Horse Park Trainers are starting a property-wide Interscholastic Equestrian Association team! This is very exciting and is a great opportunity for KMC riders to enhance their likelihood of receiving scholarships toward college while having fun competing. The SHP team will be competing in the Hunt Seat division and will ride against teams that include but are not limited to Sonoma Academy, Stanford and San Domenico.
The IEA promotes spirited competition and instruction in a team format, which is similar what one would likely encounter when riding on a college team. Two age groups are offered: 6-8 graders are eligible for Middle School Teams while 9-12 graders will compete at the High School level. Students that participate in the IEA teams have the opportunity to earn scholarships to be used toward their college education through awards in competition and sportsmanship activities.
We hope that all of our junior riders, that are eligible, will join the SHP-wide IEA team! Saturday September 6th will be the initial meeting for the IEA's newest team. The meeting will take place at Sonoma Horse Park at 1:30pm. Please Attend! If you are unable to make it please reach out to Kara or Celia for details on this wonderful opportunity for learning and fun!
