IEO Young Riders T-shirts For Sale!
Have you ever wanted a t-shirt all your own!? Well here is your chance to get your own t-shirt and guess what! The money you spend on this amazing t-shirt goes to a great cause; the IEO young riders. The young riders are now selling these really amazing cool t-shirts. The t-shirts are IEO blue and say “I support youth in dressage” on the back with the IEO logo (see picture). The profit from the t-shirts will help active IEO young riders attend clinics this year. Why should you support youth in dressage? Well, if there are no young riders the joy of the beautiful sport of dressage won’t get passed to the next generation. The best way to get more people involved in the IEO is to get youngsters involved. Think how many youngsters will want to do dressage when they see the IEO young riders being supported by the whole IEO club. T-shirts are great! Supporting youth in dressage is great! Put those two great things together and what do you get? An amazing opportunity to buy a t-shirt and support youth in dressage. What are you waiting for? Fill out this order form and send it to Samantha Bray!
