- The final Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage Training Session of Spring 2013 wrapped up Sunday at Oak Hill Farm in Lockport, Illinois. The two-day training session featured 11 horses between the ages of four and six and was once again led by USEF Young Horse Coach Scott Hassler.

“We had a terrific training session at Oak Hill Farm in Illinois. There was once again a nice balance of U.S.-bred and imported horses,” said Hassler. “It was great to see riders I have worked with in the past with new horses as well as meeting some new professionals. Overall there was nice quality riding and I have a good feeling I will see some of these combinations at the Markel/USEF Young Horse Dressage National Championships presented by HorseShow.com in August. Participation from the auditors was also very strong which reaffirmed to me that this central area of our country is very dedicated to the development of young dressage horses.”

The open training session was attended by breeders, horse owners and local young horse enthusiasts. In addition to two days of mounted lessons, participants enjoyed discussions with Hassler.

Participants in this training session included:

“The camaraderie, passion, and learning that went on there, in one short weekend, was inspirational,” said participant Jessica Starck. “The passion Scott has for what he does, the love he has for the horse, and the knowledgeable creative approach he has to teaching is extremely prevalent. We all agreed we are proud to have him represent us.”
