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.

About the USEA New Event Horse Program

The USEA New Event Horse (NEH) Series classes are designed to be an introduction to the sport of eventing for horse and rider. Adapted from the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Program, the NEH classes include a dressage phase and a jumping test and are intended to assess a horse’s capability for eventing and provide a stepping stone to recognized eventing. New Event Horse classes focus on education and preparation to begin eventing in a correct and progressive manner. The ultimate goal of the New Event Horse Series is to choose the horse that possesses the talent and mindset who, with proper training, would be the horse most likely to become a competent, safe, and fun adult amateur, junior, or young rider horse at the Preliminary level and below.
