Dulles, VA - At the USEA Board of Governors meeting August 13, 2014, the Board voted overwhelmingly to waive the transfer and handling fee associated with Xentry for the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC), presented by VTO Saddlery. This reimbursement will also apply to the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series Final (GCF), and the Adult Team Championships (ATC).
What does this mean for competitors entering the AEC in 2014?
On the eve of their departure for Europe, we caught up with the U.S. Team alternates. Hannah Burnett (Mrs. Jacqueline Mars' Harbor Pilot), Megan O'Donoghue (Pirate), and Marilyn Little (Raylyn Farms & Team Demeter's RF Demeter) will be based in Chantilly, France with the rest of the squad for the final preparation for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy.
Many adult amateur eventers are familiar with The Chronicle of the Horse/USEA Adult Team Challenge, which has been offered for over 20 years to foster team competition and camaraderie across the country.

The USEA is pleased to announce a very special award that will be offered at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC).
The award honors the memory of Avery Dudasch, who showed tremendous courage and grace in her battle with cancer. Avery passed at the tender age of eleven but the memory of her short, bright life lives on in her pony, Gracefully Dun, who is now ridden and competed by Avery’s mother, Vicki Dudasch.
The 2014 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) in Tyler, Texas are quickly approaching and the opening date is next week, Tuesday, August 12th.
Cindy DePorter, National Adult Coordinator, from Area II discusses the Adult Team Championships, and Robert Kellerhouse from Area VI brings us up-to-date with plans for the 2014 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships and Adequan Gold Cup Series Final, which take place at the Texas Rose Horse Park, Tyler, TX, September 25-28th.
Laine Ashker downplayed her chances of a winning the Advanced at Millbrook Horse Trials for the second year in a row all weekend, but she and Anthony Patch remained cool under pressure and rode a beautiful show jump round to defend her title in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup/PRO Tour Series. With less then two points separating Ashker from Phillip Dutton and Fernhill Cubalawn, she knew she needed to jump a clear round to win, as Dutton had flawlessly piloted both Fernhill Cubalawn and Fernhill Fugitive around the course.
Laine Ashker and Anthony Patch are sitting comfortably atop the Advanced division leaderboard at the Millbrook Horse Trials (Millbrook, N.Y.) in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup/PRO Tour Series. It's not an unfamiliar position for them, as they won the Advanced division here in 2013.
The track suits “Al” and Ashker knows how to bring out the best in her longtime partner, an off-the-track Thoroughbred (Castle Guard – Aimee Alexis). “I’m really honored to be in this position with these great riders,” said Ashker of Henrico, Va. “We’ll see what happens tomorrow.”
