USHJA Emerging Athletes Program (EAP) Regional Training Program

August 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am - August 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm


The MZ Farms/USHJA Emerging Athletes Program was created to provide opportunities for young riders to advance their horsemanship education and riding skills. Since the EAP’s inception in 2009, athletes have gone on to earn numerous championships and titles in the Hunter, Jumper and Equitation show rings, including the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals, the ASPCA Maclay Finals, USEF Prix des States, and the IHSA Nationals, to name just a few.

Those wishing to apply to a 2023 EAP Regional Training Session and who meet the eligibility requirements for participation must submit the EAP application form and $50 application fee, have three individuals complete the EAP Recommendation Form on their behalf, and complete the Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Level One Quiz with a score of 80% or higher, no later than April 1, 2023.

Riders accepted into the EAP begin by participating in a five-day EAP Regional Training Session where they work with top riding clinicians and stable managers. Instruction focuses on flatwork, gymnastics, related distances and course work, as well as an intensive stable-management curriculum that incorporates proper care and grooming, horsemanship skills and barn management. Riders provide their own horses for the Regional Training Sessions and all necessary care. Horses should be comfortable jumping a jumper-style course at the height selected by the participant (.90m or 1.0m).
