PODCAST: FEH Symposium Round-Up

By USEA

On the last episode of the USEA Podcast, Maxime Livio and Marilyn Payne talked about the Instructors' Certification Program (ICP) and Young Event Horse (YEH) Symposia, part of the USEA Educational Symposium that took place in February at the Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, Florida. This week, Robin Walker, Peter Gray, and Christian Schacht join us on the show to discuss the Future Event Horse (FEH) Symposium.

First, Robin Walker speaks about the future of the FEH Program, in particular the need for more and quality judges to support the number of FEH competitions that are now taking place across the country.

Peter Gray joins us then to talk about what he looks for as a judge, both in-hand and over fences, remarking that the quality of the horses he sees come through the FEH Program has improved steadily every year.

Finally, Christian Schacht comes on the show to discuss different aspects of conformation and how they will affect the horse as an athlete, from the hoof to the topline and everything in between.
