Future Event Horse Program

USEA Future Event Horse Program



Program Mission

The USEA Future Event Horse Program (FEH) evaluates the potential of yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds to become successful upper level event horses.

The FEH Program was introduced in 2007 as a pilot program as a precursor to the already popular USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Program, which is designed for 4- and 5-year-olds. Since the “test year” was so successful – with more than 50 young horses competing at the year end Championship – 2008 would see the FEH’s first season as a bona fide USEA program. FEH Classes are in-hand classes for yearlings, 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds. At Championships, 3-year-olds are required to compete in an additional free-jump division. The FEH program also offers a 4-year-old class in which the horses show their gaits under saddle at qualifier events, and compete in a free-jump division at Championships. The free-jump divisions will only be held at Championships - qualifier events will not have any jumping.

Each age group is judged separately, and genders within the age group are judged separately when the number of entries allows. In order to compete in FEH classes, horses must be registered with the USEA, but a special FEH rate is available for owners who may not want to register the horse fully yet.
