Here's a little entertainment to spice up your day - reigning Olympic gold medallist Leslie Law riding All the Buzz at this year's USEA/Spalding Labs Young Event Horse Championships. The pair placed second out of the five-year-olds with an 80.50, a little over a point behind Darren Chiacchia and Hanno.

If you read yesterday's press release on the USEA site about land conservation, listened to John Strassburger and Deb Balliet's talk at the USEA Convention, or perhaps are actively involved in preserving riding areas in the United States, then you're well aware of the harsh facts that face equestrians...

That's right, folks, America's favorite itty-bitty red-headed dynamo has added another notch to his belt by winning the 2007 Farnam/Platform USEF Horse of the Year (maybe they should change it to "Equine" of the Year to be P.C.??). Congratulations to O'Connors, Teddy and Karen! What a fabulous way to end such a fairy tale year.

In case you missed any of the action at the 2007 Pan Am Games down in Rio, get the inside scoop with photographer Shannon Brinkman. She kindly provided the USEA with a daily blog of her adventures down in South America. Although it's a bit of late news, it still makes for great reading - thank you, Shannon!Sunday, July 22

Planning the head to the Wellpride American Eventing Championships out in Chicago this coming September but dreading the drive? Or maybe you're still on the fence about whether or not you should make that long haul out to Lamplight. In either case, there are options!

I am new to eventing and in search of a trainer in Area 5, specifically Texas, more specifically, from the Austin area to San Antonio. I have seen too many accidents/falls and thus I am searching for someone who has safety as a top priority. I know that anyone can hang a shingle out and claim to be a trainer so I am really trying to do my homework on this. I have searched the USEA's website and reviewed their Certified Trainer list. It is limited in my specific search area so I though I would ask for input. Any advise or names of trainers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

You may not have noticed how variable event scheduling has become unless you travel and compete out of your home area. But the topic is really quite interesting to consider. Each eventing area seems to have a culture of its own. Good event organizers find it important to ‘know’ their ‘customers. While the hallmark of events are the characteristics and qualities of the cross-country courses, other aspects of the competition are also part of why or why not a rider chooses to ride in a particular event on a particular weekend. The event schedule is one such aspect.
