However, IEA horses vary greatly from an old school horse to a fancy show horse. There will be times in IEA where every rider gets a “bad” draw, generally characterized by the horse being more difficult to ride than the other options. During these times never insult or blame the horse, as the owners are generally at the show and have generously donated their horse to be used. Embrace the challenge and trust that every IEA rider understands the variability of the horse draw.
