Recently, I wrote about some up-coming ideas regarding the USEA's Young Event Horse program, and one of these exciting dreams will be realized in just a few weeks! The Fork Stables will be hosting a Young Event Horse In-Hand Symposium on April 9-10, 2007 in Norwood, North Carolina.
I was told recently that the most useless piece of information in the USEA Omnibus relates to the course description and reads as follows: "Courses suitable for horses with some experience at this level". The complaint is that this description gives the riders no idea whether this is an appropriate course for their horse or for them.
Pick up any equestrian magazine, review the Table of Contents and almost assuredly, you will find a topic related to injuries of horses....tendons, stifles, backs and so on. But how often do you find something written about rider injuries? Let’s look at this in more detail..
For those of you who breed sport horses for eventing, how interested are you in participating in the USEA's Spalding Labs Young Event Horse Series? The program was founded as a "starsearch" for "America's Next Top Four-Star Horse" and has been welcomed with open arms into the eventing community.
Hello Eventing Enthusiasts!
Three years ago the USEA launched the USEA/Spalding Labs Young Event Horse Series, which can be best described as an equine talent search, giving owners and breeders the opportunity to showcase the potential of their four- and five-year-old horses while encouraging them to produce top-level event horses for the future, with the ultimate goal being to identify the next four-star champion.
My name is Emily Daily and I recently joined the staff here at the USEA as Communications Assistant, so I'm constantly hearing all sorts of new comings and goings in the event community. Recently we ran a press release, though just about everyone in the eventing world already knew, about the retirement of the Radnor Hunt Three-Day Event.
