The U.S Equestrian Federation has announced the athletes selected for the 2022 USEF Eventing Emerging Athlete Program. Eventers age 25 and younger are eligible for the program, which identifies and supports athlete/horse combinations that have shown the potential to develop into future U.S. team candidates.
Participants in the Emerging Athlete Program have the opportunity to work with U.S. Eventing Development and Emerging Coach Leslie Law in honing their skills in competition as well as their knowledge of the pathway to high performance.
Athletes are selected for the Emerging Athlete Program based on their application, which includes their results at the CCI3*-L level. Applicants who have not yet achieved a qualifying result at a CCI3*-L may be talent spotted into the program by the Performance Advisory Team.
