Weekly Lesson Packages

$50-100 per lesson

Estimates per lesson may vary based on location, rider skill level, and goals. These estimates are based on a one lesson per week, but the foundation may be able to provide more based on applicant needs.

Fees for an IEA Season

These estimates include the annual IEA membership, entry fees, show coaching fees, and practice fees. The numbers of classes and practices may vary based on rider competition level. The coaching and practice fees will vary based on trainer and location. This estimate does not include weekly lessons required by some teams.

Horse Show Entry Fees

Minimum $500 - $1000+

Estimates are dependent on level of show (Local or "A"), as well as goals and needs of the rider. In covering entry fees, the Foundation may give a rider the opportunity to compete in a finals class, derby, or other goal. This estimate only covers entry fees and stall fee. Depending on need, the Foundation may also cover training fees or a horse lease for the show.
