National Young Horse classes

Thursday afternoon in the Wheeler ring we begin the transition to the performance show with the national Young Horses classes.  These tests are specifically designed to show a young horse’s potential for dressage. A panel of judges will look at the athleticism, basic paces and general impression of the horse as a dressage prospect. General impression includes temperament, natural talent and conformation to become a high-level dressage horse. Overall performance is more important than the details of the test. This includes the cooperation with the rider, natural balance, willingness to perform, and willingness to collect. Classes include the USEF 4 year old test, the FEI  test for 5 , 6 and 7 year old horses.
