We have some news that we are excited to announce- Hodges Badge has just become the official ribbon supplier to the IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association). We are happy to sponsor this growing group of competitive young riders.
For those of you that are not familiar with the IEA, the organization enables middle and high school riders to compete on a team representing their school or barn. There are teams all over the country which host shows competing in English, Western, and, new this year, Saddleseat disciplines. Similar to the IHSA , students ride unfamiliar horses that are provided by the show and drawn at random.
So, if you’re involved with the IEA, what does this announcement mean? First, we’ve got the IEA logo ready to use on ribbons and awards, and it’s available to you at no extra cost. Second, we’re got all the show supplies you need and are here to help!
