Young Horse Divisions Added to 2017 Heart of the Carolinas Event

USEA Young Event Horse and Future Event Horse divisions have been added to the 2017 Heart of the Carolinas (HOTC) Three-Day Event and Horse Trials at Southern 8ths Farm May 3-7.

The FEH/YEH competition will take place on Thursday, May 4. The divisions include YEH-4yo, YEH-5yo, FEH-yearling, FEH-2yo, FEH-3yo and the new FEH-4yo. This event will count as a qualifier for the 2017 FEH/YEH Championships.

YEH 4 and 5-year-olds may also enter the horse trials which begins on Friday, May 5.

All YEH/FEH owners, riders and handlers are welcome to audit the three-day educational sessions taught by our excellent clinicians and officials such as the jog and dressage demonstrations, ten-minute/vet box discussions and cross country course walks.

The HOTC organizing committee is dedicated to horse and rider education and adding the young horse divisions to the schedule seemed a logical way to bring the concept full circle. The USEA’s YEH and FEH programs were created to identify talented event horses for the future, but many breeders and owners have also found that their youngsters benefit from the exposure to a competition atmosphere and everything that goes along with show prep and travel.

Southern 8ths will also host a standalone YEH/FEH competition offering the same divisions on Sunday, August 19, 2017 as an additional Championships qualifier and a fundraiser for the 2018 Heart of the Carolinas Three-Day.

The USEA Lady Rider of 2021 is Leading the Charge in Elevating Eventing Competition on the West Coast

Tamie Smith’s year has been nothing short of action-packed as she packed up all 25 of her competition horses and made her way to the East Coast for the first part of the year before hopping on a jet to Tokyo where she served as the U.S. team reserve for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She then stayed overseas and competed abroad for a little while before returning home to the West Coast. While this year has been full of opportunities to show, her aspirations are bigger than just competition. The 2021 Bates USEA Lady Rider of the Year has been full steam ahead chasing goals in both her riding career as well as in her impact on the sport’s future.

Get Your Young Event Horses Ready: 2022 YEH Calendar and YEH Rule Change Updates Announced

The USEA established the Young Event Horse (YEH) program in 2004 to identify young horses that possess the talent and disposition to, with proper training, excel at the uppermost levels of the sport. While the goal of the YEH program is to identify horses that will be successful at the four- and five-star levels, horses with the potential for lower-level success are also showcased by the program.
