Don't let winter weather get you down. Use the off season as an opportunity to fine tune your riding! In this winter weekly web series, we will revive past Grid Pro Quo articles from our magazine, Eventing USA, to help you brainstorm ways to keep you and your horse in tip-top shape even if you only have access to an indoor arena.

The GPS in your car gets you where you want to go physically. The GPS in your head gets you where you want to go mentally. GPS is an athletic acronym for Goal-Problem-Solution, a unique technique combining goal setting with problem solving.

1. Goal

Identify something you'd love to accomplish... something that will take you from good to great and make your riding more enjoyable and ultimately more successful. It can be a physical goal like learning the flying change of lead or a mental goal like riding more confidently in front of crowds. Make it specific, write it down, and then tell it to a friend, family member or your trainer (this is called publishing your goal which increases your chance of achieving it).

Roy Burek visited our Annual Meeting to share some of the most cutting edge innovations in safety for equestrians. He began by explaining how helmet testing has existed historically. Manufactures have previously tested helmets in a direct fall scenario as if the rider were to hit the ground at a 90-degree angle. The reality is that most falls see impact in uncharacteristic ways. Burek showed an animation of this fall, which helped visualize the amount of movement that occurs inside a helmet when a normal fall like this takes place. Even with this amount of movement within the helmet, the outside may still appear unscathed.

Why:

Course builder, Eric Bull, has generously donated one this Novice level cross-country cabin to the USEA to be auctioned off with all proceeds going to support the USEA Collapsible Fence Study to ensure that we raise sufficient funds to meet the $25,000 challenge set by Ms. Jacqueline B. Mars.

Eric has built courses for the world’s top designers and is in great demand because of his commitment to superior construction using the very best materials possible.

One of the most common topics during the United States Eventing Association’s (USEA) Annual Meeting and Convention was Volunteer Initiatives. Volunteers are the unsung heroes of our sport, and Eventing could not survive without its many, many dedicated volunteers.
