USEA Young Event Horse Series

USEA Young Event Horse Series

Comments

USEA Area II is considering offering Young Event Horse, New Event Horse and Future Event Horse Year End Awards this year. Because we changed our way of calculating winners, from high points to high average scores, I think we will be able to include these categories. They will be based on the scores at the USEA Young/Future/New horse competitions. What we will need is people to sign up! And we'd like to have a few trophies to offer, too. We have quite a few competitions in Area II - enough to offer year ends. If interested we would need a minimum of 4 handler/horse registrations per category to offer. Would this be something that Young/Future Event horse people would participate in? Typically registration for year ends is $25 per combination and we automatically count all the official results at the USEA. At the end of the year we give nice ribbons or gift certificates and I would ask for trophy sponsors for the winners. Interest? Bear in mind this is just Area II.
Entry List for the Ocala FEH/YEH Series I at the Florida Horse Park next Tuesday.

Riders have been asked to email the horses breeding and to designate whether or not they are for sale. We will also have an announcer on site announcing each horse

Spectators encouraged!
I’d like to announce the start of an exciting program for US breeders and trainer to run alongside the YEH series...

US Event Horse Futurity 2019 (Born in 2015)

Purpose
• To develop a market for purpose bred /produced event horses through media exposure and publicity
• To develop and promote a pool of professionals who are willing and able to develop the young event horse to the top levels of the sport
• To develop and align a network of breeders, trainers and riders to develop the pool of young horse talent in the US
• To engage the general public into the world of young horses and Young Event Horse Training
• To develop a fan base for young horses and young horse trainers.

Eligibility
• Completion of the Application
• Open to horses eligible for the 4 year old Young Event Horse Championships of 2019
• US purpose bred only (no OTTB that have recorded works or starts)
• Age verification required with application -(proof of pedigree and date of birth) such as registration papers, stallion certificate, vet verification
• Commitment of riders/trainers to provide monthly training updates in the form of a blog and short video (3-5 minute clip) (Failure to provide two updates results in dropping from program and forfeiture of nomination fee).
• Horse and rider to compete as a team.
• Horse and rider must be registered with the USEA
• Must be eligible and complete the requirements (including the qualification scores) for the YEH Championships to be considered for the final awards
• Only horses planning to attending the East Coast YEH will be considered for the pilot year
• Must satisfy all USEF requirements (Safe Sport)
• Must sign a hold harmless agreement
How:
• Entries will submit an application form and a fee of $525 if accepted prior to Jan 1 and 750 prior to Jan 15 Once paid, the fee is not refundable in any case
• Nominated entries submitted to the committee will be chosen based on adherence to the selection criteria and purpose of the Futurity
• The decision of the selection committee is final
• No refund of any monies will be given in cases, such as, but not limited to – illness, accident, injury of horse or rider or failure to qualify for the Championships
• Entries will be limited to 12 horses for the pilot year
• A page (The US Event Horse Futurity) will chronicle each contestant monthly This page will develop a dialog on assessment of pedigrees, training of young horses with transparency, typical setbacks, etc so allowing those not familiar with young horses to understand the patience and skill required.
1. The 1st month blog/video will have a breeding focus, with the breeders to contribute information on why they picked this particular sire and dam, as well as bloodlines, etc
2. The second month will show groundwork or the starting of the horse under saddle, so as to expose the public to how young horses are started
3. Monthly blogs will then be required, with the understanding that this is a transparent process and setbacks are to be acknowledged
4. The committee will suggest curtain topics for discussion
o Questions: can include the following
• How much handling has the horse done prior to starting training?
• Has he gone off the property to any in hand shows/inspections/schooling?
• Barefoot or shod?
• What is the Initial impression of the horse?
o Monthly update questions:
• How is it going with the young horse?
• Tell us about the bridle and saddle you start the young horse with?
• Progress, Set backs, Overall impression of suitability this month?
• Tell us about the schedule? What does an average week look like? Hacking, vs. schooling, days off?
• How are things going with shoeing, clipping, shipping?
• What is your goal for the next month?
5. Transparency is to be encouraged. Not every horse will be mature enough to participate in the Championships, and not all training will go to plan. These setbacks are to be acknowledged and worked through in a visible manner. It is our hope that a trainer will develop a following, not only by winning the competition but also by developing the young horse to the best of their abilities.
6. 2 consecutive months of not posting will eliminate a contestant from the program - no refund will be given

Awards to entrants
Awards will be presented at the East Coast Young Event Horse Championships in October 2019 to the highest scoring Futurity Entrants. They do not have to be the overall winner, but must compete and finish the competition to be eligible for the prize money.
Monies collected will be distributed in the following manner after expenses are met (awards, face book costs)
o 10% to the breeder of highest scoring Futurity entrant
o 50% to the highest scoring Futurity entrant
o 25 % to 2cd place Futurity entrant
o 10% to 3rd place Futurity entrant
o 5 % to 4th place Futurity entrant
o Ribbons to the Highest scoring horse and reserve
o Ribbon to the fan favorite entrant (chosen by polling the week before the Championship)
Awards to fans
o There will then be a drawing of a winner from all those who correctly picked the highest scoring Futurity horse (prize to be determined) in the polling the week before the Championships
o Other special awards (most engaged, best insights, etc) may be awarded to fans as the program develops

Questions to [email protected]

The USEA Young Event Horse Series may be best described as an equine talent search. Youngsters are asked to complete three sections:

Conformation and Type
Dressage
Jumping Test/Gallop/General Impression

Requirements

Age: Horses are considered to be one year older on January 1 each year regardless of birth month.
4 year-old classes are for horses attaining four years of age in the current calendar year.
5 year-old classes are for horses attaining five years of age in the current calendar year. Mares that have had term or near-term foals will be allowed a “bye” year if a certificate of verification, signed by a veterinarian, is submitted to the USEA office. The intent of this rule is to allow mares who have taken time off to be bred to compete in four year old classes as five year olds and five-year-old classes as six-year-olds. Membership: Membership in the USEA is required. Horse Registration: In order to maintain complete records on Young Event Horses in our database, the USEA requires that all horses be registered to participate in YEH classes. Registration will insure that the horses' full pedigree and competition results will be maintained. Please provide a completed Horse Life Registration form to the USEA. If you have breed registry papers on your horse, send a photocopy along with the USEA HLR form. Thank you for your cooperation! Saddlery: Only snaffle bridles may be used in dressage and boots and martingales are optional for jumping. No boots to be worn in Sections I or II. Dress(relaxed): ASTM/SEI approved helmets mandatory for jumping. Dressage phase: Collared shirt with sleeves, breeches, and boots. Jumping phase: Cross-country attire with safety vests and armbands. Foreign Horses: Foreign horses must attend and achieve a qualifying score at a sanctioned YEH competition in the United States in order to participate in the championships.
