My name is Carla VanEffen. I am 45 years old, wife and mother of two, and I am applying for the Worth The Trust Adult Amateur Scholarship. The definition of trust is “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.” This describes the relationship I have with my 8-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Remastered or “Remy,” my equine partner for the last two years.

But when I arrived at Twin Rivers late Tuesday evening, I was instantly greeted by my teammates Sophie Tice and Brianna Maroney, who were just finishing up barn chores before heading out to dinner and it already felt like we’d all been friends for ages.

Bikram yoga, CrossFit, Zumba, Tae Kwon Do, personal trainers, half marathons, and more; rider fitness is crucial in the sport of three-day eventing. The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce the upcoming web series that will spotlight exercise routines from top international riders.

Whether it’s riding one or 12 horses a day, Novice level or the four-star level, staying fit out of the saddle can greatly improve performance in the saddle. Leading up to a big show, emphasis is placed on horse fitness but some tend to forget about the pilot who is guiding the thousand-pound animal.
