IEA Photography: Culver’s Annual Cupid Challenge

Last weekend, Culver Academies hosted their annual IEA Valentine’s Invitational: The Cupid’s Challenge. This two-day event is always a lot of fun as there are usually around 100 kids from 18-20 horsemanship programs in attendance. The program includes both Jumping and Dressage competitions for every skill level. Being an IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) event, this show counts towards the point ranking systems that allows the participants to qualify for National Competition.

On Saturday, I attended and photographed the event, taking over 3,500 photos from 8:30am-6:30pm. As tired as I was, I kept reminding myself that many of the kids had been there since 6am for the schooling of the horses.

I’ve posted a few photos here. The rest of the photos are located by event class at:
