USEF, USEA Revamp Eventing 18/Advancing Athletes

Coming on the heels of the first Eventing 18/Advancing Athletes training sessions in Ocala, the USEF and USEA have joined forces to revamp the program for 2014, according to a USEF press release. In addition to applying for admission into the program, riders will be observed by 20 Talent Spotters at select events during the spring and summer. The Talent Spotters will then report their findings back to the Talent Advisors, who will select the program riders by Aug. 8. Training camp dates will then by set based on geographic location of the riders.

The Talent Advisors — who also serve as Talent Spotters — are Mike Huber, Jon Holling and Bea di Grazia, with Jan Byyny serving as a substitute member. The remaining Talent Spotters are Kerry Milliken, Carol Kozlowski, Lynn Symansky, Karen O’Connor, Kyle Carter, Becky Holder, Cathy Jones Foresberg, Sydney Conley Elliot, Brian Sabo, Jil Walton, Jean Moyer, Allie Knowles, Cathy Weisschoff, Rochelle Constanza, Barb Crabo and Frederic Bouland.
