MARKEL/USEF NATIONAL YOUNG AND DEVELOPING HORSE CHAMPIONSHIPS | MARKEL EQUINE INSURANCE WITH MARY PHELPS
The aim of the USEF/USDF Dressage Young Horse Emerging Program is to provide strategic guidance and educational opportunities to selected horses in each young horse division of dressage (Four, Five, Six, and Seven-Year-Olds) with the perceived ability to eventually contribute to the Elite Program and achieve Podium scores within three (3) quadrennials. This program is overseen by the USEF Dressage Young Horse Coach, Christine Traurig, with the assistance of the USEF Dressage Technical Advisor and USEF Dressage Development Coach. This program is considered a stepping stone to the Dressage Development Program.
