. The program will allow junior riders an opportunity to have a better understanding of what goes on in these areas at a horse show and to determine if they would like to pursue a career in these positions.

The apprenticeship is for 1 day, maximum of 8 hours and the participants must be USHJA junior members between the ages of 14-18.
