Next weekend the USEA is hosting a Future Event Horse and Young Event Horse Seminar at High Point Hanoverians in Chestertown, Maryland on both the 16th and the 17th of November. There will also be a seminar for the west coast eventers at DG Bar Ranch in Hanford, California on December 14-15. As the FEH & YEH competitions continue to grow in popularity and participation, attending one of these seminars could be integral to your success if you are considering entering your young horses for 2014 and beyond.
“The seminar will include lectures and presentations by experienced breeders and judges Susan Graham-White, Faith Fessenden, and Robin Walker as well as biometrics specialist Dr. Deb Bennett. The focus of the session is to introduce both judges and interested parties to the Future Event Horse program. It is appropriate for anyone who is a breeder, exhibitor, judge, or just passionate about young horses.
In addition to the lectures, the seminar will include free jumping and under saddle demonstrations. In the coming years, the FEH committee hopes to add free jumping and three-year-old Materiale classes to the FEH Championships and these previews will help introduce both the judges and potential competitors to the additions.”
All riders, breeders and sport enthusiasts are welcome to attend, and USEA members get in free of cost. While the weekend will focus mainly on FEH training and classes, there will be a YEH portion on the Friday prior, at the Holiday Inn in Chestertown. YEH judge and renowned dressage judge Marilyn Payne will be leading the video and discussion session.
