The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the new partnership with Guardian Horse Bedding for the 2019 USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) Championships. As a sponsor of the FEH overall awards, Guardian Horse Bedding will provide the funding to create awards for the overall 2019 USEA FEH Champions. The overall awards will be given to the highest scoring horse of each age group after the three USEA FEH Championships are finished. The four overall FEH champions will receive $500 in prize money and a small trophy.
This year, the USEA FEH West Coast Championships will be held at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, California on September 19, 2019. The USEA FEH Central Championships will be held at Snowdonia Farms in Tomball, Texas on September 26. The USEA FEH East Coast Championships will be held at Loch Moy Farm in Adamstown, Maryland on September 28-29. The USEA FEH Championship judges will be Peter Gray and Chris Ryan.
“This award is the most prestigious and recognizes the overall champions in their age group countrywide. To have the support of such a high-profile company means a great deal to this program. Guardian horse bedding remains the only choice for many of us and to have them involved only encourages the FEH committee to push on and further improve the quality of the young horse experience for breeders and competitors alike,” said Robin Walker, co-chair of the FEH committee.

About the USEA Future Event Horse Program
The USEA introduced the Future Event Horse Program in 2007 in response to the popularity of the already established USEA Young Event Horse Program. Where the YEH program assesses 4- and 5-year-old prospective event horses based on their performance, the FEH program evaluates yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds for their potential for the sport based on conformation and type. Yearlings, 2-year-olds, and 3-year-olds are presented in-hand while 4-year-olds are presented under saddle at the walk, trot, and canter before being stripped of their tack and evaluated on their conformation. Divisions are separated by year and gender. At the Championships, 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds are also required to demonstrate their potential over fences in an additional free-jump division.

Sidnee Milner and My Valentine did not become partners out of sheer coincidence. The pony and rider combination that took home the 2021 SmartPak USEA Pony of the Year award were a product of the thoughtfulness and generosity of family friend and trainer Tawn Edwards. Milner was, at the time, a young and inexperienced child rider looking for a partner to teach her the ropes of eventing; My Valentine was a well-seasoned eventing pony who knew the job of advancing young riders well and was looking for her next partner. Over their three-year relationship, the duo have accumulated various ribbons and accolades together with 2021 being the most impressive of their seasons thus far.
