Look at the wintertime as an opportunity to really enhance your skills as a rider and allow yourself time to get to the basics with your horse so when the competition season comes around, you’re confident and ready.

It’s hard to get motivated when the temperature outside is below 30 degrees, there’s nothing on the competition calendar for months, and you’re more than likely going to be stuck in your indoor if you don’t have a concrete plan. For those riders that can’t escape the winter to go south, Ferguson creates a game plan that allows you and your horse to reach new milestones and stay fit. This way you can hit the ground running come spring, feeling like you’ve really made some major improvements without having to attend an actual horse trial.

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce that the Future Event Horse (FEH) program will include a Central Championship in 2018 to accompany the East and West Coast Championships that already exist.

“This will be a huge boost for the program,” stated FEH Committee Co-Chair, Robin Walker. “The United States is so big that it’s hard for a lot of people and their very young horses to go from one coast to another to compete at the Championships and get recognized. Having the option to host a Central Championship is going to cater to the breeders in the middle of the country and strengthen the program across the board. It’s going to give us more depth.”

When training a young event horse, you should put a lot of emphasis on building strength and muscle so your horse can properly do their job. Using your time wisely and efficiently while on your horse is important and it helps you as the rider have a plan and a goal to stick to during your ride. Jenny Caras walks us through an exercise she loves to incorporate into her daily routine that she has success with on her horses that have just been broke all the way up to her Advanced-level mounts.
