2024 USEF Saddle Seat Medal Finals Qualifying Season Has Begun



 US Equestrian invites saddle seat equitation athletes in the junior exhibitor and adult amateur ranks to plan their path to the 2024 USEF Saddle Seat Medal Finals. The finals will be held once again at the UPHA American Royal National Horse Show in Kansas City, Mo., in November.
 
Competitors in medal qualifying classes and in the finals may ride any breed of horse, and the expanded qualifying opportunities at Morgan and Arabian shows that started in the 2023 season are continuing for 2024.
 
Arabian riders may qualify for the USEF Saddle Seat Medal Finals by placing in the top four in designated saddle seat equitation classes at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, Ohio Buckeye Sweepstakes & NSHR District Championships, and the Arabian and Half-Arabian Youth National Championships. See full details here.
 
For Morgan riders, the top four placing riders in an American Morgan Horse Association Saddle Seat Silver Medal class held at a USEF-licensed competition will also be qualified for the USEF Saddle Seat Medal Finals. Click here to see a current list of qualifying AMHA shows.
