USEF Young Horse Champions: Where Are They Now?

Watching the USEF Young Horse Championships, I wondered how young dressage horses who achieve that level of success fare as their careers progress. To explore this, I created the tables below, which follow the top 15 horses from each age group and each year through the end of 2015. Each year/age group is sorted by their placing at the championships and each horse's score from the championships is also listed. In future years, the horses' range of performance in USEF recognized shows at each level is shown (if I had more time on my hands I would do medians or means as well). I hope you find it illuminating!

Fine print:
  • Following each horse's name is its breed and country of birth, when known. I did my best with country of birth. If you know of any corrections, tell me!
  • Only scores from USEF recognized shows are included. Where is it known that a horse went overseas, that is noted.
  • Developing Horse tests are grouped in with the regular tests of the same level.
  • Freestyle scores are omitted.
