OCALA, Fla. — Chris Talley, of Honey Brook, Pa. attended the US Equestrian (USEF) Emerging Athlete Eventing 25 Program (E25) training session in Ocala, Fla.

Participants in the US Equestrian (USEF) Emerging Athlete Eventing 25 Program (E25) and the Emerging Athlete Eventing 18 Program (E18) completed their winter training sessions last month. The Emerging Athletes List designates athletes with the potential to evolve into future team candidates.

"It was a great experience that I was honored to be a part of. I'm always looking to add to my tool box in the development of our horses. I came out of the program with a number of new tools and exercises that I'm excited to use to further educate myself and our horses," Talley said.

Amanda Beale Clement of Phoenixville, Pa. was also accepted into the program and Emma Lomangino of Millbrook, N.Y. was invited to audit.

Over the course of intensive three-day training sessions, the groups rode in mounted lessons with the USEF Eventing Emerging Athlete Coach Leslie Law. “I have been very excited and inspired by my Emerging Athletes sessions to date this year. The quality of riders has grown exponentially over the past few years and this is definitely the strongest group that the program has seen, yet,” said Law. “If the strength we are seeing in the program right now is any indication of the future, it could be quite exciting to see what lies in store for America with this next generation. I am very proud of these riders and very thankful to be part of the program.”

Training sessions on the East Coast and the West Coast also included a variety of lectures from industry experts on business and stable management, training practices, travel and competition overseas, course design, judging a dressage test, drugs and medications, and horse and human physiology.

In Ocala, Fla., the E25 training session was held Jan. 8-11.

 “It was a pleasure working with the emerging athletes. My goal was to give them a perspective of what the course designer is asking of the horse and rider in the show jumping course,” said guest lecturer and course designer Chris Barnard. “With the way Leslie coached the riders over the course that we set together, they have some exercises to work on with their horses at home that will help their show jumping at events. The feedback I received from many of the riders was positive and I look forward to working with them again.”
