Co-chair of the USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) Committee, Susan Graham White, judged the 4-year-old FEH division at the Horse Park of New Jersey Horse Trials at the end of June. This 4-year-old division is new in 2017 and was introduced to give horses who are not quite ready to compete in the 4-year-old Young Event Horse classes an opportunity to compete. In addition to judging the class, Graham White took some time to sit down and discuss judging this new division in greater detail.

Time proved to be very influential in today’s cross-country competition in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division at Millbrook Horse Trials, and on a day when no one made it in under the optimum, coming as close as possible made quite a difference in the leaderboard.Boyd Martin and Steady Eddie (Jetball x Tuneda) were the last pair to tackle Tremaine Cooper’s cross-country track, but were one of the two fastest rides of the day. Adding just 2.0 time penalties to their dressage score of 31.9, the pair moved up from seventh place after dressage to take the lead.
