The USEF Young Horse Championship and Festival

The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is pleased to announce an exciting new program designed to identify and develop talented young horses in the United States. Plans for a USEF Young Horse Championship and Festival at the Kentucky Horse Park in the fall of 2014 are well underway. "We are very excited about this new initiative which has been created to connect breeders, owners and trainers of young horses" remarks USEF Chief Executive Officer John Long, "and promises to be a unique event providing a multi-discipline showcase for the equine stars of the future."  


The USEF Young Horse Championship and Festival is intended to showcase and identify the best young horses in the United States in the dressage, driving, eventing, hunter and jumping disciplines. The event is also intended to promote American-bred horses while creating an incentive to buy, own, and show young horses. The Championship and Festival will talent-spot horses in two ways; a competition hosting horses ages four through seven years-old, and an in-hand evaluation by a panel of experts for yearlings to three-year-olds. Both will help to provide educational opportunities regarding breeding and development of young horses.
