The Future Event Horse (FEH) program evaluates the potential of yearlings, two-year-olds, and three-year-olds to become successful upper level event horses. In order to get a more complete picture of a young horse's potential, the USEA is officially introducing free jumping divisions for 3-year-olds in 2016. Through the jump chute, the judges will be able to examine the horses’ canter movement, jumping technique, jumping ability and scope.

This is one of my favorite exercises for horses that are just coming back into work after some time off, whether they were getting some scheduled vacation or some unscheduled rehabilitation. With plenty of rails on the ground, Exercise #1 is a great exercise for reminding the horses of where to put their bodies. The rails are not there to try to trip them up in an effort to sharpen them. Rather, the rails are there to spell things out a bit and give them confidence. If the horse starts to rush a little or lands in a heap, the ground rails help the horse and rider regain their center of balance. Consequently, if the rider gets off balance, the ground rails will make the horse’s job twice as hard, as they now have to not only keep their center of balance, but also adjust for their off-centered rider. So it is a great exercise of control for the rider.
