In February 2023, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) announced a new pathway for the Future Event Horse (FEH) program. The Young Horse Show Series (YHS) has taken over the FEH program and will run classes under the YHS umbrella during the 2023 competition season. USEA members that are interested in gaining exposure for their young horses are encouraged to participate in YHS events this year.

The Young Horse Show Series is designed to provide sport horse breeders, as well as owners, trainers and riders of all disciplines, with an affordable way to introduce their young horses to the show environment. YHS events are also intended to create a sales environment that brings together numerous young horses in a single location where their talents can be displayed in front of a buying audience.

The USEA will continue to support the FEH program and YHS through sponsorship of the three YHS/FEH Regional Finals and the $1,000 USEA/YHS Eventer Recognition Program. Loch Moy Farm (East), Haras Hacienda (Central) and Twin Rivers Ranch (West) will now host regional finals this fall that will allow participants the opportunity to qualify for the Young Horse Show Series Final at Tryon International Equestrian Center on Nov. 7-11, 2023.

View the calendar of 2023 YHS events below, and keep in mind that the list is subject to change. New competitions can be added throughout the season, so members are encouraged to regularly check for the most current list of events.

About the 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 evaluated yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds for their potential for the sport based on conformation and type. The FEH program will now be run by the Young Horse Show Series, under their umbrella.

Fast Facts: MARS Bromont CCI

After not running in 2020 and 2021, the MARS Bromont CCI Three-Day Event returned to the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Center in Quebec, Canada, in 2022. America's Jennie Saville (née Brannigan) and Twilightslastgleam won the CCI4*-L, as the chestnut Thoroughbred gelding (National Anthem x Royal Child) bred and owned by Nina Gardner moved up from eighth after dressage into the lead after cross-country with the fastest round on wet ground over the tracks designed by Derek di Grazia. Canada's Lindsay Traisnel and Bacyrouge, a bay Selle Français gelding (Mylord Carthago x Lelia) owned by Patricia Pearce, finished second, and they are among four from the top-10 in the CCI4*-L in 2022 that return in 2023.

“And again, and again, and again”: Knowing When to Come Again and When to Switch Up an Exercise

The great football coach Vince Lombardi said, “We win our games in practice.” With the goal of having the most effective practices possible for horses, their riders, and their coaches, Cathy Wieschhoff explains some signs that can indicate when horse and rider should repeat an exercise, switch it up, or be done with that activity. Wieschhoff brings perspective as a five-star rider that has competed at the Kentucky Three-Day Event and Burghley Horse Trials, a USEF “R” Course Designer for eventing cross-country and show jumping, a former Area VIII chair and member of the USEA Board of Governors, and a Level V USEA ECP Certified Coach based out of Carriage Station Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
