October 20-21, 2018
Sonnenberg Farm
Sherwood, OR
with Scott Hassler and Michael Bragdell

This program provides a correct fundamental system for starting sport horse prospects. The forum is intended for all individuals with the goal of developing a consistent training foundation for sport horse prospects, and will bridge the educational gap between the current USDF Sport Horse In-Hand Program and the USEF Young Horse Program in the training of sport horse prospects as they progress from in-hand to under-saddle and eventual competition. The correct training of young sport horses is universal; however, horses chosen to participant in the forum will be prioritized based upon their likelihood of a career as a dressage horse. Those interested in other sport horse disciplines are encouraged to apply as a participant or auditor, as attending this forum can be beneficial to anyone involved with young sport horses.
