The USEF has just released the 2017 Eventing 25 and Eventing 18 Program Participants List! These riders will be invited to participate in training sessions with USEF Eventing Emerging Athlete Coach Leslie Law in California and Ocala.

From the USEF: 

Following the post-Rio review, new approaches and definitions to all of the USEF eventing programs are being evaluated and introduced.

The Emerging Athletes Lists are designated as athletes with the potential to evolve into future team candidates. USEF Eventing Emerging Athlete Coach Leslie Law will provide the Eventing 25 and Eventing 18 athletes with skill instruction and insight in their respective training sessions.

The Eventing 25 athletes will train at Meredyth South in Ocala, Fla., Jan. 9-12, followed by the Eventing 18 athletes, Jan. 16-20. Both groups will train at Tucalota Creek Ranch in Temecula, Calif., Jan. 30 through Feb. 2.
