Benchmark year for Young Horse Show Series
The Young Horse Show wishes to thank all of our Sponsors, handlers, judges, and supporters as we wrap up our 2015 show season. Without the support of all of you, the Young Horse Show Series would not be as successful as it is today.
Sponsors include, Spy Coast Farm , Tequestrian Farms, Safety Check Inc, Footing First, Aliboo Farm, and Page Brook Farms. A special thanks to Muny Sunk Stables and BWP/NAD as well as Cav-i Farm and Equine Trading Center.
Our judges for the 2015 YHS finals included Jos Sevriens, Diter Felgendreher and Christian Schacht. We had amazing handlers who did a wonderful job with the young horses, Klaus Schengber, Phil Silva, Quinnten Alston and Jordan Bali. The Tryon Riding and Hunt Club were very generous and provided us with some helpful volunteers who were vital to helping the Finals run smoothly. We would also like to thank the Tryon International Equestrian Center for hosting the Young Horse Show Finals. We also give a special thank to Vaneli Bojkova and everyone from TIEC for all of their help coordinating the event. We hope everyone has a great winter, and we look forward to seeing many young horses in 2016!

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.
2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons are now behind us and the YHS Series is now the new standard for breeders as well as young horse owners and trainers here in the US. Over the years, the numbers have doubled and the business has flourished for every one involved. The new Tryon Resort and Equestrian Center has become the home of the YHS Finals. Their excellence in Equine Sport production and support of the young horses has proven to be a huge benefit for the Equine enthusiasts. They have also created a Perpetual Trophy for each year's Champion of the High Score Best American bred horse at the Finals.
An additional and most important “SPECIAL THANK YOU !” goes to all the participants of the YHS series!
As the 2016 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: email@example.com
Thank you and Happy 2016 YHS season!
