An easy way to practice eventing is at a USEA New Event Horse (NEH) competition. Designed as an introduction to the sport of eventing, the USEA NEH Series classes have a structure similar to the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Series with two phases: the dressage phase and the jumping test.

NEH classes are open to any horse that is 4 years old or older and any rider that is a member of the USEA. Horses must be registered with the USEA but may be registered with a limited membership. The ultimate goal of NEH is choosing the horse that possesses the talent and mindset most likely to be a competent, safe, and fun adult amateur, junior, or young rider horse at the Preliminary level and below.

Judges are to be derived from the YEH Judges List. Those judges are guided to look for horses with an aptitude for dressage and jumping, and the temperament and suitability for eventing. Priority should be given for the horse the judge views as likely to become a capable and sensible partner at the Preliminary level and below.

With a low-pressure environment, NEH classes are a cost-effective and safe way to introduce a horse to the sport of eventing. The 2020 NEH calendar is now available for competitors to start planning their next class.
