Competing on a level playing field, the horses are divided according to age and jump at a level suited to their development. This careful development allows the horses to gain valuable experience and advance to the higher levels of show jumping competition with confidence. The Jump Canada Young Horse Series also gives prospective buyers for the hunter and jumper markets an opportunity to view a large group of prospects in a competition setting.The 2010 Jump Canada Young Horse Series is truly national in scope with competitions being held from coast to coast. The National Young Horse Finals will take place at the Canadian Show Jumping Tournament held from September 22-26 in Palgrave, ON.For more information on the Jump Canada Young Horse Series, including rules and registration forms, please visit http://www.equinecanada.ca/jumpcanada/index.php?option=com_content&task=category&id=88&Itemid=3.Jump Canada Young Horse Series – Caledon National, Palgrave, ONSeven and Eight-Year-Old DivisionHorse Owner Rider1.
