The Young Event Horse series here in the U.S. is a growing program, and one that is an integral part of producing the next generation of eventing stars. All over the country, young horses who exhibit promise for the future are put through their paces to measure their talent for competition in the sport.
This February, a three-day symposium, “Evaluation of the Young Event Horse Prospect”, will be held in Ocala. Well-known authorities on the subject such as Marilyn Payne, Susan Graham White, Robin Walker, and David O’Connor will be present to discuss the evaluation of these young horses.
It’s a great educational opportunity for those who are interested in becoming more involved with Young Event Horse competition, and will be free for USEA members. Non-members can pay a $50 fee to attend the symposium. A classroom segment will be held at the Marriott Courtyard in Ocala along with demonstrations at both Longwood Farm and Meredyth Farm South.
Those interested in obtaining certification for both Young Event Horse and Future Event Horse judging will be able to do so through this symposium as well. The event will be held February 16-18, 2015 and those interested can register using this form.
Come out and enjoy the warm weather while learning about a vital part to ensuring the continued growth and improvement of the sport. Go Eventing!
