The Young Horse Show Series is designed to provide sporthorse breeders as well as owners, trainers and riders of all disciplines an affordable show venue to introduce and evaluate their young horses to the show environment and "put on necessary mileage” with appropriate and special classes suitable to the proper development of young horses. It is also intended to create a sales environment where numerous young horses are in a single location and their talents displayed in front of a buying audience.
Created in 2009 by Jean-Yves Tola and with the help of the North American Studbook directors and professionals of the sporthorse industry, the first "test” show took place at Spy Coast Farm in 2010. The response and obvious success of the show motivated Lisa Lourie and Jean-Yves Tola to take it to the next level. A meeting with Mark and Katherine Bellissimo, other ESP partners and key figures followed shortly thereafter and because of their vision, generosity and real understanding of the industry’s needs towards young sport horses in the US, the Spy Coast Farm Young Horse Show series was created.
