Like the years before it, 2010 was another year of growth for the USEA Young Event Horse Series (YEH). The USEA YEH East Coast Championships were once again held at Fair Hill International and the USEA YEH West Coast Championships, now in their second year, were hosted at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, California. The two championships combined saw 26 starters and there were 18 qualifying events held over the course of the year.
Like the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program, the USEA New Event Horse (NEH) program is a great way to introduce eventing to a horse that's never experienced it before. However, unlike the YEH program, the NEH classes are open to horses of any age and are also a great introduction to the sport for an inexperienced rider.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the dates, locations, and judges for The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse Championships in 2021. The Young Event Horse (YEH) Championships offer classes for 4-year-old and 5-year-old horses which includes a dressage test, conformation evaluation, and a jumping/gallop test.
The USEA is sorry to announce that there will be no USEA Educational Symposium held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The USEA Educational Symposium is hosted annually each February as a week of learning for participants and auditors.
Established in 2004 as an eventing talent search like similar events in Europe, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Young Event Horse (YEH) Program was designed to identify young horses that possess the talent and disposition to, with proper training, excel at the uppermost levels of the sport.
At the risk of stating the obvious, most of us who event do so because we enjoy jumping. But most of us could stand a bit of improvement, whether in the way we ride, in the way our horse goes, or both. Additionally, most of us will at some point be faced with the task of starting a green horse or re-schooling a horse that has developed problems over fences.
While 2020 has been unexpectedly challenging, the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program found a silver lining and had several positive outcomes and record-breaking results this past year. With high turnout in both the YEH qualifiers and The Dutta Corp. USEA YEH Championships to the extraordinary achievements of the YEH graduates, it was a good year for the YEH program.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the renewed partnership with Etalon Diagnostics. As a Contributing Level Sponsor to the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) and USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) programs, Etalon Diagnostics will provide 10 Minipanel PLUS Tests with Ancestry to be used towards prizes for the USEA YEH and USEA FEH Championships.
It was a year of firsts for the USEA Young Event Horse Program (YEH) in 2009. It was the first time the USEA YEH East Coast Championships were held at Fair Hill International and it was the first time the West Coast hosted their own USEA YEH Championships at Galway Downs International.
At first look, Chris Ryan called this 5-year-old Holsteiner mare a “good correct sort. She could be a Thoroughbred cross, but might still lack a little refinement to make the times at the upper levels.”
