Embracing the relationship between horse and rider
Dear Friends of the Idaho Dressage Festival,
We are once again planning our annual Idaho Dressage Festival to be held on June 4th, and 5th, 2022 at Once Upon a Horse in Eagle, Idaho. In the past, sponsorship drives have generated enough support from both the local and national vendors […]
Greetings to all! I am Tami Aufderheide, your new President for IDEA. I am so pleased to be working to promote the sport we love in Idaho.
This year, the Board of IDEA has implemented some new awards and programs to help grow our membership base as well as provide education to our members. We have added new year end breed awards as well as expanding year end placings to 5th place. We are also providing a $500 clinic/educational event assistance to each of our chapters.
We are hosting two shows at Once Upon a Horse this year. Our level 2 Boise River Show, and our Level 3 Idaho Dressage Festival. C&M Farm is sponsoring high point breed awards to be given at these shows for: Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred, Draft/Draft Cross, Pony, and Grade Horse. These will be a great addition to the shows!

New Grant program
The Board in an effort to make the year end award policy as clear as possible would like to add the following words to:
To qualify for Annual Awards, Owner or their designee shall volunteer at an IDEA approved or sponsored activity during the award year. The minimum number of required volunteer hours will be specified in the IDEA year-end award score sheet, published on the website
To qualify for Annual Awards, Rider or their designee shall volunteer at an IDEA approved or sponsored activity during the award year. The minimum number of required volunteer hours will be specified in the IDEA year-end award score sheet, published on the website.
We have had this requirement for several years now; however, we have never formally placed it in the by-laws. It has only appeared on the score reporting form where it was easily missed by new members. We feel this will help to clarify award criteria. Voting will take place via an email survey to all current members
