The Markel/USEF National Young and Developing Horse Championships Set to Showcase the Best in the U.S.!
Tuesday, August 19, 2014
The horse/rider combinations that have accepted their invitations to the 2014 Markel/USEF Dressage Seat and National Young and Developing Horse Championships are headed to the pictueresque Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL to go head to head for bragging rights as the best in the U.S.! The event will kick off with the jog on Wednesday August 20, 2014 and run through Sunday August 24, 2014. The Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Program (for 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old horses) promotes the importance of selective breeding and correct training of horses in the United States, and encourages participation of breeders, riders, and trainers of young horses in dressage competition. The purposes of this program are to encourage the properly structured development of young dressage prospects through the training scale; to identify and recognize outstanding talent and the training of international-caliber horses; and to prepare these horses for future careers at the FEI level and participation on U.S. High Performance teams.
The Markel/USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championships presented by HorseShow.com is for 7-9-year-old horses competing at the FEI Prix St. Georges level and for 8-10-year-old horses competing at the Grand Prix level. This program is part of USEF's initiative to recognize up-and-coming dressage talent for High Performance - not only for riders, but also for horses.
