Blenheim EquiSports is proud to announce a new Young Hunter Program, which is divided by age, offers free entries, discounted stall fees and features a Championship in the fall. With this opportunity, plus the new structure for Green Hunters, the CPHA 3' & 3'3" Incentive Program and more, the show season offers ample opportunities to develop horses, compete and earn prizes in the Hunter divisions.
New Division, New Final and Free Classes!
In support of the new US Equestrian division, this year The Blenheim EquiSports Young Hunter Series & Final (an exclusive Blenheim EquiSports Program) offers divisions for 5, 6 and 7 Year Old Hunters with no entry fees and discounted stall fees. There will be sixteen $1,000 Young Hunter Classics, each of them qualifiers for the Final. The entry fee for each one - $0. Also note that all of the classes, classics, and championships count for US Equestrian HOTY Awards.
"With US Equestrian revamping the hunter divisions, we are pleased to offer expanded opportunities for young hunters like we've been able to do for young jumpers," said Melissa Brandes, Blenheim EquiSports VP of Marketing. "From free entries to a fall championship, it's going to be a great season for developing horses."
To participate, the age of horse must be verified in accordance with Federation policies prior to competing (only Breed Registry Papers will be accepted to determine proof of age and identity).
The 2017 qualifying season will commence March 22, at Spring Classic I, and concludes September 14, 2017. The Blenheim Fall Tournament, September 13 - 17, 2017, will host the inaugural $10,000 Young Hunter Final.
