Things we DO have in the US for young horse development
After the thread of things we need in the US for breeders to help develop their young horses I thought it might be helpful to have a thread of things that we DO already have...that we need to foster and help develop further. One of the things that the AHS is trying is to compile listing of farms that can raise young stock and train young horses. Here is a link:
I will add the Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Program and its official clinics around the country to help riders of young horses hone their skills. Also the Young Dressage Horse Trainers Symposium held at Riveredge. Both programs feature Scott Hassler, who has made it his life's work to help educate riders on the training and development of young dressage horses.
