June 2018
ICP Young Event Horse Workshop for YEH Instructors and YEH Professional Horse Trainers - this is still forming, but dates have been pitched for three days in June, to be held during the week. The faculty member will be Eric Horgan. Ronan Moloney has graciously offered to host this workshop at his farm, Kinnitty Capall Stables in Ancramdale, New York. There will be room for 8 participants and plenty of room for auditing! The USEA is currently considering hosting an assessment in Area 1 in the fall, so priority will be given to those who are planning to take that assessment and become certified. A wonderful opportunity for all to witness some fantastic young horse training!
