USEF Announces 2011 USEF Driver Training Long List


Lexington, KY - The United States Equestrian Federation, Inc. (USEF) is pleased to release the 2011 USEF Driver Training Long List.  The Driver Training Long List is established by the USEF on the basis of a driver/horse/pony combination achieving a total of 175 penalties or less for singles and pairs, and a total of 200 penalties or less for four-in-hands in a national competition at the advanced level in the U.S.; a European CAI; or a national European competition (for which the Driving High Performance Committee has given approval). 

This qualifying score must have been achieved in any of the previous two calendar years which indicates that those driver/horse/pony combinations are the strongest candidates for future teams.  Long Listed driver/horse/pony combinations are eligible for USEF Training Programs and consideration to compete abroad.
