Star-Studded Field Ready for Platinum Performance/USEF Talent Search Finals East

RELEASE: October 3, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Helen Murray

Gladstone, NJ- Seventy of the top junior and young riders have flocked to U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation Headquarters in Gladstone, N.J., this week for the annual Platinum Performance USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals East. Ronnie Beard and Anne Kursinski will serve as judges and
course designers for the four-phase competition which will be held October 4-6.

Competition officially gets underway Saturday morning with Phase I, Flatwork. Competitors will then return to the Dick and Jane Brown Arena later in the afternoon for Phase II, Gymnastics. In Phase III on Sunday, all entries will show their ability over a jumper-styled course. Following the conclusion of Phase III, the top four competitors will be called back for a ride-off. Phase IV will showcase the same format used for the Show Jumping World Championships, with each rider completing a course on his/her own horse, as well as the three other riders’ horses.

The Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals boasts a roster of graduates that include multiple Olympic, FEI World Equestrian and Pan American Games medalists. There are very few awards and accolades that have eluded Lillie Keenan (New York, N.Y.). But after claiming Team and Individual Gold at the 2013 Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC), she will look to add her name to the prestigious list of winners of the USEF Show Jumping Talent Search. Chase Boggio (Canton, Ga.) has also amassed a lengthy resume in his junior and young rider years, but the 2011 NAJYRC Gold medalist has yet to earn the Talent Search title. He will look to head the field this weekend.

The USEFNetwork.com presented by SmartPak will stream all four phases of the Platinum Performance USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals East. To watch visit; http://www.usefnetwork.com/featured/2013USEFShowJumpingTalentSearchFinals/
