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.
