Today’s IEA rider is @eq.carrie . Carrie is one of our Future Novice riders and we are so excited for her to get more experience with showing!

Carrie decided to join the IEA team because she thinks it will be fun and she wants to try something new. Her favorite horse is Zuko because he is fun to ride and because she likes his personality. She is proud of herself for improving as a rider and becoming more confident with horse care. She says that her goals are to get more experience showing and to one day own a horse. We are very excited to help Carrie reach those goals and continue to see success in the show ring!

Today’s IEA rider is Riley. Riley is returning to our team this season as a Future Intermediate rider after pointing out of the Future Novice last year. She is also a Co-Captain of our middle school team.

Riley’s favorite horse is Zen because of how fun he is to ride and his laid-back personality. Her riding goals include qualifying for Zones and riding in college. She is proud of the progress she’s made in riding and showing, as she’s been successful in IEA, started leasing a horse, and showing in the hunters and equitation. In addition to riding, Riley swims competitively. She’s excited for a fun IEA season this year and we are too!

It’s time for another IEA rider profile! This rider is showing in the Future walk/trot and we think she’ll be a great addition to our team!

Her favorite horse is Sunny. Her greatest accomplishment in riding is earning champion at her first show. She’s also very proud of how quickly she can tack up a horse. This year, she would like to get more experience jumping. A fun fact about this rider is that she started fostering kittens this year and she loves it!

We are so happy to have @meghan_eqq returning to our IEA team this year after an awesome season last year! She will be showing in the future novice division.

Meghan’s favorite horse is Kobe. She says she’s learned a lot from him and he makes her happy. Meghan says that her greatest accomplishment in riding is figuring out how to set goals. For example, this year she wants to qualify for regionals! Meghan plays lacrosse in addition to riding.

Meet Riley (@raspberry.eq ), one of our Varsity Intermediate riders. She’s a hard worker and dedicated equestrian, and we’re so happy she chose to join IEA!

Riley is doing IEA to have fun and to grow as a rider. Her favorite horse is Zuko, who she has shown successfully in the hunters, including in her first derby over the summer. She hopes to keep showing in hunter derbies, show at higher levels, ride in college, and maybe, one day, professionally. Riley is also the captain of both her high school lacrosse and field hockey teams! We love having a multi-talented role model at the barn. Go Riley!

Meet Lily, one of our Future Intermediate riders who we love working with for her positive attitude!

Lily is fairly new to showing, but chose to join IEA because she thinks it will be a good learning experience and will let her spend more time with horses and with her friends. Lily’s favorite horse is Rose. Lily says “every time I ride her, I learn something new about myself and about her.” She sees her greatest accomplishment as figuring out how to listen to the different horses she rides, so that she can be a good leader for them. Well said, Lily, and that’s one of the many reasons we’re so lucky to have you on our IEA team!

First up is @tessa.brandon_ . We’re so happy to have Tessa back at Clairvaux. She will be showing in the Open Division.

Among Tessa’s many accomplishments both in and out of the show ring, she says her greatest ones are learning to handle stress well and to never give up. Her goals are to qualify for various medals finals this year and to ride in college. Tessa has a lot of favorite horses at Clairvaux. Some of them include her horses, Roo, Arko, and Pepper, as well as our pony, Oliver.

Last week was our mini show camp! Our campers practiced riding in different types of classes, worked on grooming and bathing, built jumps in a course, discussed opinions on show clothing, registered for a show, and, finally, used everything they learned to compete in our VHSA show at the end of the week! We’re excited to do another show camp for a full week next month!

Today we learned about the different types of shoes horses can wear and why. We heard from the farrier, then investigated some horses around the barn. Before that, we did some no stirrups games (with very exciting prizes from @chantillydoversaddlery !) to have fun and get stronger at the same time! We’re loving trail and games week!

Our first week of camp is off to a great start!

This week, campers are learning about horse care and barn management. Today, they were lucky enough to be able to observe and learn from our farrier, veterinarian, and massage therapist about what they do to keep our horses healthy and feeling good. Then, campers shared what they learned about each horse with each other by hanging it up on a wall. And of course, we’re doing plenty of riding, too!

⭐ Lucinda's Words of Wisdom ⭐

"Save the stick and spoil the child."

Your horse is your partner but he has no power to think like us, or like dolphins or chimps.

Those 3 species are the only ones that can actually reason - the rest "associate ideas", which is very close - but the lack of ability to reason means our horse cannot lead us - we must be the one who leads him and gives him direction - and because he learns over time to trust us - he becomes braver and then usually loves what he does.

If his rider is not prepared to lead him and to give him a clear framework of discipline - [the go button means GO - the stop button means STOP / please don't walk all over me and respect my space] then life becomes a less and less happy place for him as he is without direction.

It was a busy weekend but a good weekend! We showed at @morvenparkeq Saturday, @uppervillehorseshow Jump 4 Fun today, and also held a horsemanship seminar. We’re so grateful for our Clairvaux community for your dedication and hard work 😊

So true! “Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.”

So true! “Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.”

To all my jumpers out there, This is for you. It doesn't matter if you have the fastest round if you knock a rail. Taking your time at the lower levels sets you up for success when you move up to bigger fences. When our first priority becomes beating the clock, things like our horse's straightness and balance go out the window, We lose the ability to make tight organized turns, we start dropping rails, courses get forgotten, and mistakes happen so much quicker.

Our horses and riders put in some hard work yesterday at Morven Park International Equestrian Center and we couldn’t be prouder 🥰

Vivian got two first places and champion with Stormy in the Pre-Short Stirrup, her first time at a show!

Maddy rode beautifully in the Short Stirrup and was reserve champion.

Savannah and Turtle put in good trips at their first show together!

Taylor and Choco were champion in the .85m.

Reese and Kobe made some big improvements at their second show together and we’re so excited for them to keep showing!

Karen rode great and she and Jack were champion in the Low Hunters! We’re so proud of all the progress they’ve made.

Amy and Basil put in solid rounds in the Low Hunters. They looked great and their progress was clear!

Molly and Ranger also had good rounds in their divisions and looked awesome.

Riley and Zuko earned second place in the derby, their first time in that type of class. Riley was very thoughtful in her riding and made great choices!

Oliver and Callie went to a show for the first time. Callie was champion in the horse pleasure and Oliver had great trips in the Hopeful Hunter and looked adorable in the pony pleasure! Huge thank you to Tessa for your help with them!

We’d like to recognize Erin Gilmore Photography for her hard work and gorgeous pictures, that we already have less than 24 hours later 🤩 Finally, we want to make sure we recognize our riders’ families for their support during this long and very hot day. We couldn’t do all this without you!

Lots of ribbons and lots of smiles at Red Gate yesterday! 💙❤️💛

Maddie did a wonderful job in Lead Line and in the pattern ride at her first show ever.

In Pre-Short Stirrup, Mackenzie and Henry both had great rides and successfully navigated their crowded ring.

In the Low Hunter, Natalie, Lily, Grace, Sydney, Ellie, all put in great rides and placed well in a very large division. Karen and Jack had good trips and placed 5th under saddle in their first show together.

Reese rode great in the Pleasure their first time showing and got good ribbons on Kobe.

In the Limit Hunter, Riley and Zuko were champion. Claire had good trips on Sunny and hacked him beautifully. Eva and Basil had good rounds and ribbons, again, out of a lot of horses.

Katelyn and YooHoo were reserve champion in the Red Gate Novice Equitation.

Maddy and Stormy earned champion in the Short Stirrup Equitation, with a clean sweep of the division.

Flynn rode Chandler well in the Student Equitation and earned a 3rd place.

Finally, at the end of the day, Bridget and Henry placed 2nd in the VHSA medal.
