I think that's awesome. Hopefully, it will inspire judges to get themselves familiar with Le Lion and what kind of horses belong there.
The USEA Young Event Horse Committee is delighted to announce the Holekamp/Turner Young Event Horse Lion d’Angers Prize and Grant. This grant will award the highest scorer of the USEA Young Event Horse 5-year-old Championships with a cash prize that will enable them to travel to the FEI World Young Horse Championships at Le Lion d’Angers in France for the 7-year-old two-star Championships.
Winners who are North American bred will be awarded with $17,500 to travel to Le Lion d’Angers while if the winner is an imported horse he will be awarded $8,000.
If the highest scoring 5-year-old does not qualify or is unable to attend Le Lion d’Angers then the money will be awarded to the next highest scorer who is qualified, able, and willing to go.
This prize will begin with the high score winner at the 2013 USEA Young Event Horse Championships who would then attend the 2015 World Young Horse Championships.
