The USEF Eventing High Performance Committee has approved the following High Performance Spring Training Lists for the 2013 season. These lists have been redesigned for 2013, and this is a targeted approach to identify talented horse/rider combinations for future championship teams.
The Global Talent and World Class combinations will be participating in training sessions with Chef d'Equipe David O'Connor in Aiken, S.C., Gilroy and Temecula, Calif., or Ocala, Fla. These combinations will also receive training allowances for individual coaching.
