2014 Youth Jamboree
Hello Youth Jamboree Enthusiasts, Here we are again making our plans for the most influential youth activity, the Region 12 Youth Jamboree June 16-21 at the Garrison Arena, Clemson, SC.  This will be the 26th annual Jamboree.   Youth from multiple states will have the experience of their lives. The five days consists of clinics, seminars, contests, fun activities and horse show.

 Three days of free clinics are given by trainers and instructors from within Region 12 who donate their time to the youth. Clinics are given in all disciplines of horsemanship like Halter, Showmanship, Dressage, Hunter Over Fences, Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Trail, English/Country Pleasure, and Equitation. Sport Horse Under Saddle and In Hand clinics are also offered. Specialists hold seminars on subjects such as "How to Braid a Mane”,  “What Is Dressage”, “How to Set Up a Dressage Ring”, and “How to Negotiate a Trail Course”. Contests are varied. They include Art, Essay, Poster, Horse Knowledge, etc. and are divided into age groups.  

Fun classes held during the week are Stick Horse Races, Ride-a-Buck and other fun classes. The costume classes are especially exciting. Youth start planning their costumes up to a year in advance. It all culminates with a  qualifying show recognized by the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) and the United States Equestrian Federation held on Friday and Saturday.  

We also offer an Open Show for clinic youth not entering the AHA qualifying show. Any amount of sponsorship is greatly appreciated. Amounts for specified items are on the sponsorship form attached for your use. AgSouth Farm Credit is the sponsor for the t-shirts.  WCAHA has already donated $200.  Get your club, individual members, and farms to sponsor this event. This is an investment in our youth and in the future of the sport. 


2014 Summer Camp Registration is NOW OPEN!!!

My Serenity Farms IEA
Welcome to My Serenity Farms  IEA Team.The mission of IEA is to introduce students in private and public middle and secondary schools to equestrian sports,  to develop understanding and appreciation of equestrian sports through organized student competitions, to provide students with organized competitive events and to provide additional equine educational opportunities. Through the IEA, students may also have the opportunity to earn scholarships towards their college education. 

How It Works
The IEA was founded on the principle that any middle school or high school student should be able to participate in horse shows, regardless of their financial status or riding level.The IEA attempts to eliminate the expenses of students owning horses and allows more students to compete. Students ride horses that are furnished by the host barn and chosen by drawing lots.The use of personal tack is not allowed and only schooling over fences is  permitted.   This equalizes the competition and tests the horsemanship of the contestants.Classes range from walk/trot/canter for first year students to the Open Division for the more experienced riders. 

The Competition Process
Zone 4 hosts  high school and middle school teams throughout the southeast.  In order to make the competitions manageable, we are divided into georgraphic regions.  We currently have eight regions. At the beginning of the school year, each team starts with a goal of accumulating enough team points  (20) to make their regional playoff.  Winning teams at Region Finals then move on to the Zone Finals.
