Upcoming Future Event Horse Educational Seminars

I just wanted to share an upcoming USEA event put together by longtime MLE clinician Susan Graham White for the Future Event Horse program.  Click HERE for details ... or keep reading!

The USEA is delighted to announce two upcoming Future Event Horse Educational Seminars. The seminars are open to the public and will take place at High Point Hanoverians in Chestertown, Maryland on November 16-17, 2013 and at DGBar Ranch in Hanford, California on December 14-15, 2013.
Both seminars will include lectures and presentations by experienced breeders and judges Susan Graham-White, Faith Fessenden, and Robin Walker as well as biometrics specialist Dr. Deb Bennett. The focus of the sessions is to introduce both judges and interested parties to the Future Event Horse program. It is appropriate for anyone who is a breeder, exhibitor, judge, or just passionate about young horses.
In addition to the lectures, the seminar will include free jumping and under saddle demonstrations. In the coming years, the FEH committee hopes to add free jumping and three-year-old Materiale classes to the FEH Championships and these previews will help introduce both the judges and potential competitors to the additions.
These seminars are open to USEA members as well as non-members and will be of interest to anyone interested in promoting U.S. bred event horses and in learning more about the IDHSNA USEA Future Event Horse program. There is no cost for USEA members and the fee for non-members is $50.00 for the weekend.
In addition to two full days of FEH content, both locations will also be hosting a two-hour presentation on the Young Event Horse (YEH) Program the Friday prior to the weekend FEH presentations. In Maryland, the YEH session will take place on Friday, November 15 from 5 – 7 pm at a local hotel to be announced, and In California, the YEH session will be held Friday, December 13th – from 5 – 7 pm – at Visalia Holiday Inn & Conference Center. The FEH presentations are open to all and are free to attend; registration is required.
For current judges, attendance at either of the FEH weekend seminars will fulfill the educational requirements to become a FEH Judge. Interested applicants must already be a USEF Eventing Judge, Dressage Judge, or Sport Horse Breeding Judge. Current FEH judges are expected to attend one of these seminars to remain on the approved judges list in 2014.
