Applications Close October 1 For Emerging Athletes Program 2014 Host Facilities 

Although the 2013 Emerging Athletes Program Regional Clinics, presented by Dover Saddlery, have ended, the Task Force is in full swing with planning and inviting applications for host facilities for 2014.

 

Throughout all levels of the Emerging Athletes Program, USHJA works in partnership with the host facilities to produce quality Regional Clinics. USHJA offers 10 Regional Clinics in areas where an appropriate host facility applies and that best serve the demographic population and geographic balance of those interested in participating in the program. Regional Clinics are four days in length with 24 riders and their horses being invited to attend.

 

The host facility does not have to be a show facility to be considered. Private farms, boarding facilities, universities, prep schools, et cetera may apply, as long as the facility meets USHJA and EAP requirements.

 

Applications close on October 1, 2013.

 

If interested in becoming a host of this exciting program in 2014, please visit our website for more information regarding the host facility requirements.

 

To learn more about the Emerging Athletes Program please visit the USHJA website or contact Carrie Vaught at (859) 225-6703.
