John Michel Durr sits on the committee for the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program where he’s worked to design guidelines and expectations for the courses presented for the 4-and 5-year-olds contesting these divisions. His guidelines present a variety of questions to the horse without being too much of challenge. The goal is to always allow the horses to walk away more educated than they had started.

The USEA Cross-Country Design and Fence Construction Safety Task Force is a dedicated group consisting of officials, course designers, engineers, organizers and competitors. The goal of the group is to constantly evaluate all safety aspects of the cross-country phase of competition including, but not limited to, design and construction of the fences and courses.
