Registration is open for the first of what hopes to be an annual United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Youth Convention, to be held Jan. 12 in Louisville, Ky. According to the USEF, half of the available spots have already been filled.
The Youth Convention will feature many notable speakers, including experts in the equine industry, as well as spokespersons from equine-related careers.
Registration includes admittance to the keynote address, choice of which panels to attend, a question and answer session with high profile equestrian athletes, as well as opportunities to gain insight from various career spokespersons and college equestrian program representatives. The event also includes a light breakfast, lunch and closing dinner and dance. Each attendee will receive a gift bag filled with merchandise as well.
