Attention young horse competitors! The United States Eventing Association (USEA) recently added a list of 2019 Young Event Horse (YEH) Championships Qualified Horses and a list of 2019 Future Event Horse (FEH) Championships Qualified Horses to the website. These two lists will be updated twice per month throughout the 2019 competition season as YEH and FEH qualifiers are completed.
“Like puppies” Peter Gray described yearlings, one of the most challenging age groups to judge in the Future Event Horse (FEH) program. Peter Gray, a highly respected eventing judge, is also a passionate supporter of USEA’s FEH program. Gray is a USEF ‘R’ Eventing Judge, a certified USEA YEH and FEH judge, and worked alongside Robin Walker in 2018 as a FEH Championship judge.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has a variety of programs that focus on education and the Future Event Horse (FEH) program is one of them. The main goal of the program is to educate horse breeders, owners, buyers, judges, and event riders on what qualities to look for in yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds in order to develop a promising upper level event horse.
This week on the USEA Podcast, Robin Walker, Peter Gray, and Christian Schacht join us on the show to discuss the Future Event Horse (FEH) Symposium, including the future of the FEH Program, what the judges are looking for, and the ideal conformation of the event horse.
The final day of the 2019 USEA Educational Symposium gave judges and auditors the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) program. Demo horses were brought in for a full day of every aspect of the FEH Championships from yearlings to 4-year-olds.
Typically at the end of a lunge session, when the horse has settled, is an ideal time to introduce the surcingle or saddle in the middle of the round pen. The pressure of the girth and something tied around his body is what causes a horse to react.
Horses aren’t born broke and ready to ride – as much as we wish they were! There are two critical steps in the process of getting your future event horse ready for his career: backing and breaking.
