"The adventure begins...
Each year, hundreds of young riders apply to the Emerging Athlete's Program in hopes of furthering their education, not only as riders, but as complete horsemen.  The EAP was created specifically to provide opportunities for those young riders to advance their education, as they strive to become knowledgeable horsemen within the hunter/jumper community, which may or may not include a careen in the horse industry."
