Our IEA rider of the day is Ellie! Ellie is one of our JV novice riders. She is so kind and supportive of all of her teammates, not to mention she’s made a ton of progress in her riding since she joined our program last year. We’re so proud 🥹

Ellie chose to join IEA for several reasons. She wanted the opportunity to compete as a team with her friends, the challenge of competing on unfamiliar horses, and the chance to ride and kshow more often. Her favorite horse is Lilly because of her cute personality and how responsive she is to her rider. Ellie’s goals are to own her own horse, show at 3’6” and in more equitation classes, and to continue to make progress in her riding. We’re so happy to have Ellie on the team!

In the long term, she wants to figure out how to ride and show successfully in hunters, jumpers, and, equitation. When asked about her greatest accomplishment in riding, Eva said that it is coming to appreciate the hard rides because they are the ones that help you learn the most and grow as both a rider and a person. That’s a great reminder for all of us, Eva, and it makes us so proud to hear it🥹

Grace also had great rides her first time jumping in IEA, with a 5th over fences and 2nd on the flat. Elle placed first over fences in the Future Novice and earned 3rd in the flat class. Sarah, Gelila, and Avery all worked hard in a very large and competitive Future Walk/Trot/Canter class and Gelila placed 4th, her first time ever showing! Finally, we ended the day with our walk trot riders, Vivian and Olive, who both rode beautifully and took 2nd places.

Madison joined IEA because she wants to gain experience on a variety of horses and to make new friends. Her favorite horse at Clairvaux is Sunny because he’s different from what she’s used to and riding him has been a good learning experience. She is proud of herself for successfully showing a green and challenging horse. She loves riding because it’s taught her to have grit and to never give up, which are great qualities for IEA and for all areas of life. We’re so happy you’re here, Madison!
