Please note: References may not
be submitted from a family member or from a member of the EAP Committee. Applicants to the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program are required
to ensure that three EAP Recommendation Forms are completed online from the three references provided
by the applicant. One of the letters must be from a current trainer, or a trainer who has knowledge of
the rider's abilities, describing in detail the applicant's experience and capabilities. The remaining two
recommendations must be from adults within the hunter/jumper industry, including trainers, veterinarians
or farriers, for example, who have working knowledge of the applicant's riding and horsemanship abilities.
Each EAP Recommendation Form must be completed and
signed by the individual and must include contact information which may be used for verification purposes.
All responses will be kept confidential by USHJA.
