This semester was an extremely successful one for the Clemson Eventing Team. We rode with amazing clinicians, competed in an Intercollegiate Team Challenge and hosted our own schooling show! The semester began with the team’s Fall dressage clinic with Jodi Lees. She is an “R” rated judge based out of Tryon, S.C. who also judges many Horse Trials throughout the southeast. The girls on the team absolutely loved Jodi’s style of teaching and everyone finished their lessons feeling accomplished. The team hopes to have her back for a clinic this spring.

The USEA is sadden to hear of the sudden loss of Cavallino Cocktail owned by Benita Strini. “Skotty,” a 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse mare was euthanized following complications from a colic surgery on December 30, 2015. Strini bought Skotty from Zach Brandt, an up-and-coming young professional this year. Skotty took Brandt to his first CCI1* and eventually their first CCI3* together where they finished 10th.  The pair was also named to the USEF Eventing Under 25 Developing Rider program for three consecutive years.

The USEA is delighted to announce that thanks to the kindness of our members and our friends we have answered the challenge set by Ms. Jacqueline Mars and have met the $25,000 goal she established. The USEA will continue to fundraise to secure the additional $10,000 needed to fund the first year of the two-year study but we are confident that this will be achieved in the next few days, enabling us to give Dr. Smith of the University of Kentucky, the go-ahead to embark on the first phase.
