Introducing trakehners can be an intimidating feat if not presented to your horse in a systematic manner. In part one of this series White discussed her process of introducing liverpools to young horses, which is a very similar question to trakehners. Once your horse is jumping over liverpools confidently, this question is the proper next step in their training.

Two-time USEA Lady Rider of the Year, Olympic and Pan-Am Games rider, Lauren Kieffer is taking the USEA along on “bringing up babies” as she shares a year in the life of four of her 6-year-olds in their journey to become top level event horses. Did you miss part 1? Read it here.

Well, I made a mistake with one of the young horses. Eventers in general are very good at admitting when they are wrong (cue eye roll), but if you are going to work with young horses it is a necessity to acknowledge when you have made a mistake so that you can fix it. The mistake I made is one most of us have made before, and will make again, I moved a horse up too soon.

After receiving feedback from USEA members, the USEA's Future Event Horse (FEH) Committee has decided to add a 4-year-old division to the FEH program in order to provide more opportunities to the USEA membership. This opens up a new window for those 4-year-olds not yet ready for the Young Event Horse (YEH) competitions, and allows owners the opportunity to still compete in a class for their age group.
