The USEF Horsemanship Training Series is designed to identify and develop the next generation of top U.S. Equestrian Team talent through instruction from experts in a variety of aspects of horsemastership. Past participants include members of recent U.S. Teams, including Lillie Keenan, who helped the U.S. secure a Gold Medal at CSIO5* in Dublin in August 2017 and at CSIO5* Spruce Meadows 'Masters' in September 2017, Ali Wolff who was on the Silver Medal winning U.S. Team at CSIO4* Wellington in March 2017, and Jennifer Gates, Michael Hughes, and Wilton Porter, all who were members of the U.S. Team at CSIO3* Samorin in September 2017.
The 2023 USEF Horsemastership Training Series will take on an enhanced format structure, offering both in-person and online instruction with selected athletes throughout the duration of the year, and is designed to assist in the development and identification of the next generation of top U.S. Jumping team athletes.
