"Quality, quality, and more quality" could be heard from spectators at the 2018 USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Championships. Year after year the YEH Championships bring out some of the country’s best 4- and 5-year-old horses. Familiar names like Tamra Smith, Tim Bourke, Dominic Schramm, Matthew Flynn, Doug Payne, Andrea Baxter, and Waylon Roberts continue to top the championship leaderboards with their horses. So, what is it about their rides or horses that earn them top scores? Waylon Roberts, who finished fourth on UNanimous and fifth on Café Noir at this year’s championships, shares his secrets to success with the YEH program.

The Mill Creek Pony Club Horse Trials are held once yearly in May at the Longview Horse Park in Kansas City, Missouri (Area IV), offering Starter through Preliminary levels. Mill Creek Pony Club Horse Trials is traditionally the first event of the year held in Area IV.
The Mill Creek Pony Club (MCPC) began holding an annual horse trials in 1985 at Twin Mill Farms, the stable where MCPC held their mounted and unmounted meetings. In 1987, the Club moved the horse trials to Longview Horse Park where it has been held ever since.
Due to the lack of entries, we have decided to cancel the Grand Oaks Horse Trials scheduled to run on November 19-21, 2018. We feel strongly the date being on a holiday weekend was the biggest factor.
We will refund all entry fees in full and will offer free schooling on that weekend for those who had entered the event.
We are looking forward to hosting our January Horse Trials and are working hard to find a better date for our fall event.

For the past six months we’ve been talking about how to recognize and overcome unintentional negative thoughts called limiting beliefs - the unfortunate habit of putting limits on our ability to succeed, not because were incapable of it, but because we tell ourselves we are! The good news is that limiting beliefs can be overcome, but only if we recognize them first. After all, if it doesn’t feel broken, why would we bother trying to fix it?
