The primary goals of the USEF Youth Sportsman’s Award are to identify potential future leaders in the equine industry from all breeds and disciplines, and to recognize youth for their achievements.

Applicants must be age 17 or under as of December 1 of the competition year, and active members in good standing with USEF and their Recognized Association or International Discipline Association. They should demonstrate an ongoing commitment and dedication to the promotion of equestrian sport, serve as a positive role model for peers, be involved in community activities, and exhibit characteristics that exemplify positive sportsmanship principles. Participate at any level of competition, including local, regional or national events.

The overall winner of the USEF Youth Sportsman’s Award will receive a commemorative trophy, a $1,000 grant payable to the educational program of choice and a USEF Life Membership (valued at $2,500). The winner will also be one of the nominees for the USEF Junior Equestrian of the Year Award. The reserve winner will receive a $500 grant payable to the educational program of choice.
