The 2012 Sacramento International will also feature great clinics from Rich Fellers, Bernie Traurig, Jason Taylor, Hope Glynn, Julie Goodnight and Will Simpson. The Young Jumper Suitability Finals will now be run under a completely subjective format. Suitability Finals creator Rudy Leone commented, “We have made several changes over the years as the program has developed. In response to feedback from local trainers and breeders we have made these changes to keep this event unique and unlike other championships for young horses. The idea is that we choose the horses that are most likely to have the brightest future in the sport as Grand Prix prospects.” The Championships take place during the first week of the Sacramento International Horse Show on its new dates.
