August 29-30, 2015 marked the first annual Adult Rider Camp for Area IV, held in conjunction with the Illinois Dressage & Combined Training Association at Geneva Equestrian in Lake Geneva, WI. This experience went well beyond a 2 day clinic, including opportunities for participants to have saddle fittings, ride in County demo saddles, have 3 rides with 2 amazing clinicians, spend personalized time with a top lameness vet, as well as enjoying breakfast and lunch provided each day! The participants benefitted from a wealth of knowledge, made improvements in their riding, gained confidence, may have gone home with a new saddle, and overall had fun on a level unparalleled since high school summer camp!

Besides adding a Starter Novice and a Prelim\Training Division, they have been strongly encouraged by the USEA to offer The Young Event Horse (YEH) Divisions and the New Event Horse (NEH) Division.
