Sport History: Fun facts from the USHJA Wheeler Museum!
The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund/USHJA Emerging Athletes Program follows a tradition of successfully mentoring young riders under the guidance of legendary riders.

In 1984, a USET developing riders training session taught by Italian Olympian Piero d’Inzeo (center) featured future national and international grand prix stars (from left) Debbi Connor, Anne Kursinski, Leslie Burr Howard, Norman Dello Joio, Joan Scharffenberger, Eric Hasbrouck, Melanie Smith Taylor, Jeffery Welles, Katherine Burdsall, Hugh Mutch, and Louis Jacobs. These training sessions were held a few times a year, with riders chosen from regional selection trials overseen by USET coach Bertalan de Némethy.
