The US Equestrian Federation is seeking to appoint two Sport Programs Assistants to work with the Olympic Disciplines of Dressage, Eventing and Showjumping as well as the Non-Olympic Disciplines of Reining and Endurance.  Under the direction of the Managing Directors of Dressage and Eventing, these positions support the Sport Department’s mission to put in place programs that will identify talented athletes and horses, assist with their development and ultimately win medals in international competition.

In preparation for predicted winter weather, Pine Top Farm has adjusted its event schedule to accommodate for unusually harsh temperatures which are expected to dip into the lower teens on Wednesday and Thursday nights. 

To allow for temperatures to moderate somewhat before starting Dressage, we will delay the start of Dressage for all CICs and Advanced divisions competing on Friday. 

Advanced will now compete over two days, with Cross Country on Saturday.

Less than two months into 2015, it is proving to be a good year for the Ocala Horse Properties Horse Trials. Aside from having two successful events already under their belts for the year, a record 531 starters showed up for the Ocala Winter II event last weekend, February 6-8.

That number ranks very high for number of starters at any current horse trials; Rebecca Farm (Area VII) posted 573 starters in 2014, and Millbrook Horse Trials (Area I) had 487.

Update: This horse has been found and safely returned home, thanks to the enormous effort of the community to find him!

The “Evaluation of the Young Event Horse Prospect” Symposium in Ocala, Fla. is just days away, and the USEA is no longer accepting registrations for the morning classroom sessions.

While the morning sessions are full, discounted rates will be offered to auditors interested in attending the afternoon sessions at Longwood Farm. USEA members, however, may still attend the afternoon sessions free of charge.

Mental Multi Tasking

Focusing on the positive in the present - instead of problems in the past - is what often separates ordinary rides from the extraordinary ones, and what helps you keep it together when you might otherwise fall apart.

In keeping with the USEA and USEF policies to promote the domestic breeding of horses for Eventing, and in recognition of the benefits of competition-testing breeding stallions, a group of supporters have offered to endow an annual award to be given to the USEA-registered stallion that earns the most leaderboard points at Preliminary level and above. The USEA Board of Governors voted unanimously in December 2014 to approve this proposal.
