The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) is pleased to announce their partnership with State Line Tack to support the Interscholastic Equestrian Association’s (IEA) mission of promoting lifelong involvement, understanding, and appreciation for equestrian sport. State Line Tack is offering IEA Members a partner promotion that will provide funding support with a percentage of sales on being donated to the IEA to support the IEA Benevolent Fund, educational offerings, and IEA general programming for riders in Grades 4-12 to further our joint mission of making riding affordable!

IEA currently has a membership of 14,600 nationwide and offers a unique program of draw-based (catch-ride) competition meaning that no rider is required to own a horse or riding equipment, making it a more affordable way for riders to participate. The IEA also provides a safe environment for young athletes to develop unparalleled horsemanship skills, along with added life skills such as confidence, empathy, and resiliency that will support them for a lifetime.

State Line Tack is so pleased to be partnering with IEA to further the next generation of equestrians in the sport.” says Lisa Borg, State Line Tack Marketing Development. “By providing access to these riders’, we are ensuring the love of the horse and sport continues with today’s youth.”

Strategic relationships with like-minded equestrian businesses like State Line Tack help to raise funds and awareness, increasing the impact of both our organizations on the grass roots accessibility and affordability of equestrian sport.” says IEA Executive Director, Roxane Durant.

IEA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and GuideStar Gold Seal charity. Donations are tax-deductible. Check out our GuideStar #NonprofitProfile to see the great work we do to support young equestrians.
