The clinic is open to horses of all ages, but precedence will be given to horses that are 3 and 4 years of age and are currently competing in the USEA Future Event Horse (FEH) series. This Clinic is intended to be an introduction for young horses to practice free-jumping in a jump chute. The setup will be similar to the chute that will be used in USEA Future Event Horse Championships.
Free-jumping is a wonderful way to evaluate the potential of a young horse over fences. It is also an effective and positive way to introduce a young horse to jumping without the guidance or distraction of a rider. Not only is free-jumping good for young horses, but it is also beneficial for mature horses to keep them quick on their feet and to remind them how to take care of themselves when needed.
