Attention ALL Young/Future Event Horse Owners and Riders/Handlers!

Announcing YEH/FEH trophy sponsorship

YEH/FEH: Sign up NOW for Year End Awards for Area II

The USEA Area II year end awards program is offering two sponsored trophies in the Future Event Horse of the Year and Young Event Horse of the Year categories for 2022.

The USEA Area II MERLIN MEMORIAL Young Event Horse Championship, sponsored by Dr. Elizabeth Callahan in honor of her horse Merlin (Mighty Magic-Leia/Le Champion). “I’m proud of our US-bred event horses, and will continue to support the Young Event Horse program, and our sport, in whatever ways I can. Merlin participated in both the FEH and the YEH, and this award in his memory is for the top placing Young Event Horse in Area 2.” The 2021 winner was Archelos (Despite the Odds-Sailboat Sally) owned by April Shepherd, and ridden by Rebecca Lee.

Also put in service in 2021 is the Cool Na Grena Future Event Horse trophy, also sponsored by Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, and the winner was Utah Beach (Ulmar Mail-Avalon) owned by Monica Fiss-Burdette. Our thanks and appreciate to Dr. Callahan for her support.

We know all are interested in qualifying for the National championships, but along the way, your Young or Future Event Horse, shown in Area II, can gain scores and win a year end award! Not everyone can be a winner, but certainly your horse can have an Area II year end award for all your hard work.

Our score keeping system is simple, we base year end awards on high score average and ask that the horse compete at minimum 3 times in the Area; if you compete in more than four, only your best four scores are used for the average. (Following is a complete list of all scheduled YEH/FEH competitions). If we have enough registrants, we will divide awards to fillies/mares, colts/geldings, and by age for FEH. Just provide all that info when you register for year end awards. The cost is $25 per horse, and we look up all the scores for you. You can check the scoring during the year and at the end of the year after the final competition, horses are placed, and the champions are named. You can sign up at any point in the season up to October 1, and your scores will count, but to save money, do it by August 1. (After that the registration fee doubles.)

The registration for YEH/FEH is located here.

We look forward to seeing your name on our Year End Awards!
