The Bred to Event Classic

Hosted by Loch Moy Farm

August 17-18, September 14-15

 

Bred to Event Classic is hosted by Loch Moy Farm, in combination with Maryland International Equestrian Foundation. It is a competition dedicated to the breeding of event-bred horses. This classic championship will be an opportunity for breeders and owners alike to showcase their decision-making and horsemanship with the young horses they show.

With the news that the Future Event Horse program is no longer facilitated by USEA, Bred to Event Classic will further support the dedicated breeders and competitors that Loch Moy Farm has hosted at East Coast Future Event Horse Championships for 10 years.

There will be qualifiers and championships for yearlings through 5-year-olds. Robin Walker, Chris Ryan, Susan Graham White and Ian Stark are among the seasoned judges of this special events championship. This is intended to be a competition dedicated to the young horse.

For the Championship in September there will be special awards for Maryland Bred horses, TB horses, US bred horses, and prize money will be split between Breeders/Owners, and Riders. Winners of the yearling through 3-year-old competition will automatically be given a free entry for 2025 Bred to Event Classic. Winning horses of the 4 and 5-year-old competition will be given an annual entry for 3 years into the Maryland Horse Trials recognized events.

*Your entry fee includes a professional team of handlers in the jump chute. You do not need to bring your own handler. Yearlings and two year old will not recieve a handler as they do not compete in the jump chute

* Owner can choose to hand walk horse in the chute. However, new this year is a jog strip right out front of the chute itself. It is regulation size (16' X 130' trot area) with footing.
