The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is happy to announce the return of Fleeceworks as a sponsor.

On August 14-16 the Colorado Horse Park H.T. hosted both a USEA Classic Series Training Three-Day (T3D) and a Novice Three-Day (N3D) for riders wanting to be able to experience the classic format.
After dressage day in the T3D, Linda Quist and her 11-year-old Andalusian/Mustang mare, Belle Gambe were sitting in second on a 34.5, but they went clear in all four phases on Endurance day to move up to the top of the leaderboard. The pair had one rail down in show jumping and were still able to hold onto the blue ribbon.
Experts from three continents gathered at a special two-day equine surfaces forum held at the FEI headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) last month.

Mike Huber is joined by FEI Course Designer Tremaine Cooper to discuss the new 'Modified' division that is being proposed between the Training and Preliminary levels.
The countdown is on! Only one month until the Texas Rose Horse Park will welcome hundreds of horse and riders to the show grounds to compete at the 2015 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by VTO Saddlery.
There's a mental mindset where you're neither too lethargic nor too anxious; too confident nor too worried; too fearful nor not fearful enough. This place is called your Goldilocks Zone because the emotions you experience in this mindset are "just right".
Buck Davidson was all about the scoring predictions this weekend and once again he was right, knowing he could have a little bit of time on Ian Stark’s cross-country course and still bring home the blue ribbon. This is the second time that Davidson and Carl and Cassandra Segal’s 15-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding, Ballynoe Castle RM have won the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* at Richland Park, having previously being named champions in 2011.
A little less than half of the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* jumped clear over Marc Donovan’s show jump course today at Richland Park H.T., and the top four riders kept all the rails in the cup to maintain their placings. While the course seemed deceptively simply with related lines just snaking back and forth across the field, the terrain and distances kept things interesting. Donovan truly does try to set the riders up for success, and Emily Beshear said that the footing felt great and the horses were jumping well out of the grass.
The Adequan USEA Gold Cup Advanced division dressage was split over two days, but no one on Friday could catch Thursday’s overnight leaders, Kim Severson and Cooley Cross Border’s 30.9.
The Cross Syndicate’s 8-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (Diamond Roller x Whos Diaz) was the 2012 USEA Young Event Horse East Coast 5-year-old Champion and has successfully climbed the ranks with wins at both the CCI* and CIC2* levels.
With five horses in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* (not to mention the two in the CCI2* and two in the Advanced), Buck Davidson kept quite busy today at Richland Park in Richland, Mich. Before scores were even posted for the CIC3*, Davidson accurately guessed the placing order of his rides, although his prediction for his longtime partner and favorite horse, Ballynoe Castle RM to be 20 points in the lead wasn’t quite spot on!
Sundance Farm is taking their success of their first Horse Trial in 2014 and building on it by offering Young Event Horse (YEH) and New Event Horse (NEH) classes in 2015.

The University of Bern wants to thank the USEA for distributing the questionnaires about ‘Sudden Death and Collapse in Sports Horses’ and all the riders and veterinarians that answered these questions. Over 50 responses have been received and data will be analyzed soon. The questionnaire will remain on-line for a few more weeks. If you have ridden, trained or treated a horse that collapsed or died during or near exercise your input is very valuable.
