The 2014 USEA Young Event Horse East Coast Championships got underway today in Elkton, Maryland at Fair Hill International. The morning started off cool and cloudy, and these young horses were exposed to plenty of atmosphere with flags flying, cross-country jumps placed nearby, and the CCI2* horses competing on the opposite side of the main arena. Twenty-four five-year-olds and 13 four-year-olds performed a dressage test, and then their saddles were stripped and they were judged on their conformation and jogged on a concrete strip.
The proposed USEF rule change regarding the Beginner Novice, Novice, Training and Preliminary levels is still very much up for deliberation, and the USEA would like to welcome the input of its members.

Avery Klunick had a save for the history books during the 2014 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Final at the Texas Rose Horse Park. During her show jumping round, she had a refusal at a vertical coming into a triple combination and pulled In It To Win It's bridle over his head as she was tossed up his neck. Thanks to some quick thinking, Avery managed to put his bridle back on without dismounting or any outside assistance, both of which would have eliminated her from the competition. She got his hackamore back over his head and finished her course with a smile on her face!
