Youth wishing to qualify for the USEF Dressage Seat Medal Finals must compete at the USEF/USDF Dressage Seat Medal semi-finals held at regional championships. Riders placing in the top two in the semi-finals are invited to compete in the finals.

The Young Horse Selection Trials at Flintridge May 23-26 and Lesburg June 7-9 for five and six-year-olds are to qualify an opportunity for the FEI World Breeding Championships at Verden, Germany, and the U.S. Young Horse Dressage Championships.

No location or date was announced for Midwest trials which have been part of the program in the past.
