You might think you ride at a stables, barn or equestrian center - but you’d only be half right - because in fact, you ride at your happy place.
You have to agree that when you arrive at the barn you arrive at a place that's more than just fences, paddocks and arenas... it really is your happy place. The place that you go to when you need a little positive distraction from the craziness of your crazy world. Unlike other sport venues, however, your happy place isn't defined by the venue itself; but by the relationship with your trainers, peers, and horses found there.

The crowds and local community came out in large numbers today to support the Red Hills International Horse Trials. After thousands of spectators enjoyed cross-country (and some show jumping) on Saturday, many returned Sunday morning to enjoy a brunch party while watching the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division show jumping, along with many other show jumping divisions.
Show jumping kicked off this morning at 9:00 am for the CIC3* riders. 27 pairs rode around Chris Barnard’s course in the main arena, and spectators enjoyed the views from the VIP tent as well as the sideline bleachers, which quickly filled up as the sun began to shine.
The 2017 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series kicked off today at the Red Hills International Horse Trials in Tallahassee, Florida.
This marks the first of 11 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series events in 2017, which culminate at the Final in September at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships. The Gold Cup Champion receives one of the highest payouts in the sport of eventing in the United States. For the last two years, both the Advanced Division and the CIC3* Division (if both are offered) at all Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series events act as qualifying divisions for the Final in September.
After what seems like only the blink of an eye, the winter season is behind us and the spring leg of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series is back under way starting this weekend at Red Hills Horse Trials in Tallahassee, Fla. Held at the Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park, the event is now in its 19th year as top riders use the CIC3* and Advanced divisions to qualify for the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Championship this fall.

After receiving feedback from USEA members, the USEA's Future Event Horse (FEH) Committee has decided to add a 4-year-old division to the FEH program in order to provide more opportunities to the USEA membership. This opens up a new window for those 4-year-olds not yet ready for the Young Event Horse (YEH) competitions, and allows owners the opportunity to still compete in a class for their age group.
