Our Mission

The Idaho Dressage and Eventing Association (IDEA) is dedicated to the equestrian disciplines of Dressage and Three-Day Eventing in the State of Idaho.

Our Purpose

IDEA’s purpose is to foster an interest in dressage and eventing in form of offering clinics, competitions, and other educational programs by which individuals and their horses are able to progress in the disciplines of choice and encourage participation in the programs offered.


IDEA’s membership base is fairly diverse and ranges from beginner riders to upper-level competitors in both sports and a number of our members pursue other English equestrian disciplines such as Hunter/Jumper as well.

IDEA is a General Membership Organization (GMO) of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF). This designation provides multiple USDF Resources to IDEA Members, including a GMO Membership and its benefits.

We invite anyone interested to attend a general meeting, clinic, competition, or other programs to get to know us better! Or simply contact one of our State or Chapter Board Members with any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!
