The Young Horse Show is proud to announce a new partnership with Blenheim Equisports in San Juan Capistrano, California. The Young Horse Show executive team traveled to the west coast last weekend and visited the beautiful show facility. Both teams agreed that it would be a perfect facility to host Young Horse Shows due to its great location, quiet and relaxed environment, multiple rings and stabling, and existing show participants who will be competing at the show facility all summer.
The first Young Horse Show will be held on September 16th 2014 in San Juan Capistrano, CA .
This new partnership will give the west coast an opportunity to participate in the Young Horse Shows Series whereas there hasn’t been much of a chance in the past. Plans to have a west coast YHS series in CA for 2015 and also a Young Horse Show final at Blenheim is also being discussed.
Please visit the Blenheim website to learn more about their beautiful show facility and stay tuned for more information about the west coast Young Horse Shows series.
About the Young Horse Show Series (YHS)
The Young Horse Show Series is designed to provide sporthorse breeders as well as owners, trainers and riders of all disciplines an affordable show venue to introduce and evaluate their young horses to the show environment and “put on necessary mileage” with appropriate and special classes suitable to the proper development of young horses. It is also intended to create a sales environment where numerous young horses are in a single location and their talents displayed in front of a buying audience.
Created in 2009 by Jean-Yves Tola and with the help of the North American Studbook directors and professionals of the sporthorse industry, the first “test” show took place at Spy Coast Farm in 2010. The response and obvious success of the show motivated Lisa Lourie and Jean-Yves Tola to take it to the next level. A meeting with Mark and Katherine Bellissimo, other ESP partners and key figures followed shortly thereafter and because of their vision, generosity and real understanding of the industry’s needs towards young sport horses in the US, the Spy Coast Farm Young Horse Show series was created.
A final was set for December 2011 !
The 2011 YHS season was a terrific success, with well over 100 horses participating, 60 plus qualified and more than 30 entered in the finals. It reached its pinnacle on December 8th and 9th 2011 in Wellington during a wonderful and unforgettable final event. Both International Judges were astounded by the quality of the horses and the professionalism of the event.
The first season would not have been possible without the help of many individuals and companies.
We would like to thank everyone for their trust and support.
A special “thank you” goes to Lisa Lourie and Spy Coast Farm, ESP, Sweet Oak Farm, Cav-I Farm and Sakura Hill Farm, without whom the 2011 season would not have been possible.
Many thanks as well to the officials that have participated at the shows, the North American Studbook directors and assistants, The Equine Media Project and of course to all the generous sponsors of the 2011 season.
An additional and most important “SPECIAL THANK YOU !” goes to all the participants of the 2013 series!
As the 2014 series is under way, we would like to invite anyone that would be interested in hosting a Young Horse Show or simply sharing their ideas and suggestions by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and Happy 2014 YHS season!
