US Equestrian has named the Eventing High Performance Summer Training Lists for 2017. The High Performance Program continues to include Elite, Development and Merging Athlete Programs, but new to this summer’s list is a two-tiered system for the Development Program.

Here is the tier breakdown from the USEF:

“Tier 1 is designed to support experienced international athletes who have horses that are on a trajectory to reach the Elite criteria in the next four years and experienced international athletes who have horses that do not meet the Elite criteria but remain in contention for selection for the next World or Olympic Games.”

“Tier 2 is designed for athletes who have not previously attained team selection or Elite criteria that are on a trajectory to achieve Elite status in this or the next four-year period.”

US Equestrian also included that no changes have been made to the previously announced 2017 Emerging Athlete Program’s participant list. 

Congratulations to the following horses and riders!
