USDF Dressage Sport Horse Youth/Young Adult Breeders Seminar
The 2017 USDF Dressage Sport Horse Youth/Young Adult Breeders Seminar will be held July 1-2, 2017, at DG Bar Ranch in Hanford, CA. This course is an introduction for youth and young adults ages 14 to 27 to the sport horse breeding farm, its purpose, operation, and overall goals. Participants will have two full days at one of the largest dressage sport horse breeding farms in the country. Included in their time at the farm will be sessions specific to both mare and stallion management, the handling of foals and young horses as well as their training – from first haltering to under saddle as an FEI horse. Ideal conformation and movement of the dressage sport horse will be discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to gain experience evaluating the gaits of young horses under saddle.
