About the competition:
The Future Event Horse (FEH) competition focuses on yearlings to 4-year-olds to identify future Eventing stars. This is a wonderful opportunity to expose your youngster to a show environment in a relaxed manner. For yearlings through 3-year-olds this is an in-hand competition, with a similar format used in judging young Dressage horses. Horses are asked to stand for an evaluation of their conformation, then walk and trot in a triangle pattern. They then stand again for the judge to look at their conformation one final time. Yearlings are shown in a halter while 2- and 3-year-olds are shown in a bridle. At the Championship level, 3-year-olds will also perform in a jump chute.
FEH-4-year-olds will walk, trot, and canter under saddle and then have their saddle removed and their conformation evaluated. At the Championship level they will also perform in a jump chute.
