The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the new partnership with The Dutta Corporation as the Official Title Sponsor of the 2020 and 2021 USEA Young Event Horse Championships. As the Title Sponsor, The Dutta Corporation will generously provide one round trip flight for the YEH Holekamp/Turner Grant recipient to travel to the Mondial du Lion in France.
“We at The Dutta Corporation are very excited to be part of this U.S. Eventing pipeline program. We believe that with this support we can help develop our next Olympic, World, or Pan American Games Champion. We are looking forward to giving an exceptional 7-year-old horse wings to Le Lion d’Angers to represent the U.S. at the World Young Horse Championship,” said Tim Dutta, owner and founder of The Dutta Corporation. “We look forward to supporting the USEA Young Event Horse Championships on both coasts, as we understand the importance of developing horses in America to represent us on the world stage.”
The Dutta Corporation is an international and domestic horse shipping company founded by J. Tim Dutta. The company has been expanding rapidly since its inception in 1988 and particularly so in the last twenty years.
Tim Dutta had a vision of how his company should provide a top-class equine air freight service worthy of its precious clients. With his deep knowledge of both the equine and business worlds, he set about combining a structure that has the well-being of the horse at its core. This ethos has proved extremely successful with the company’s reputation growing and overtaking other comparable shipping companies.
“The Dutta Corporation is one of the finest horse transport companies in the world, and we are honored to welcome them as the Title Sponsor for the USEA Young Event Horse Championships,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “This is such great news for young event horses competing in the U.S. and I’d like to thank Tim and everyone at The Dutta Corporation for this incredible opportunity.”

The USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Program was first established in 2004 as an eventing talent search. Much like similar programs in Europe, the 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. The ultimate goal of the program is to distinguish horses with the potential to compete at the four- and five-star levels, but many fine horses that excel at the lower levels are also showcased by the program.
The YEH program provides an opportunity for breeders and owners to exhibit the potential of their young horses while encouraging the breeding and development of top event horses for the future. The program rewards horses who are educated and prepared in a correct and progressive manner. At qualifying events, youngsters complete a dressage test and a jumping/galloping/general impression phase. At Championships, young horses are also evaluated on their conformation in addition to the dressage test and jumping/galloping/general impression phase.
