Much like how a student will spend the year studying and preparing for a comprehensive final exam, the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Championship jumping test is designed to be the ultimate test of a young horse’s education over fences. Fair Hill International in Elkton, Maryland has been hosting the USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships concurrent with their fall three-day event for 10 years, serving as the final stop of the season for many 4- and 5-year-old young event horses.

“There’s a common thread between all of our phases, whether it’s dressage, show jumping, or cross-country, and that is the adjustability of your horse,” stated Phillip Dutton at the start of his jumping clinic at Rutledge Farm last week. “To me, the biggest thing in doing well is getting your horse really connected from your leg to your hand. They’ve got to learn that you put your leg on, the hock comes under, and they come up [in front].”

When first-time horse buyer Claudia Channing purchased Chestnut Oak’s Drummer Boy (Clononeer Romantic Traveler x Steege’s Beth) as an unbroken 3-year-old American-bred Gypsy Vanner/Shire cross gelding, it might have seemed like an unorthodox choice for a new rider. Affectionately knowns as “Romeo” around the barn, he has proven that he can be competitive at the lower levels of eventing. “[It was] quite the leap into horse ownership, but his quiet nature and willing attitude made for the perfect match,” reflected Taylor Lindsten, Romeo and Channing’s current trainer.
