Experts from throughout the equestrian world will lend their expertise in both mounted and educational sessions. The aim of the Training Session is to develop a pipeline of young “horsemasters” for future U.S. Equestrian Teams.
Additional clinicians include Olympian Anne Kursinski, Dr. Deb Bennett, Ph.D, U.S. Show Jumping Team Veterinarian Dr. Tim Ober, and farrier Dean Pearson.
The USEFNetwork.com presented by SmartPak will host wall-to-wall coverage for the third consecutive year of this prestigious training session, which will take place in Ring 9 at PBIEC. The public is also welcome to audit all mounted and educational sessions at no charge.
