Lexington, Ky. – Winter is coming. For some of us winter is already here! USRider reminds everyone who travels with horses to be careful, and to invest time performing routine preventative trailer maintenance to enhance overall travel safety.
While it is imperative to maintain your vehicle according to the manufacturer’s service schedule, it is also important to take your vehicle to a trusted mechanic. This is especially crucial for heavy-duty vehicles towing precious cargo. It is better to be proactive rather than reactive.
As we come to the end of the 2014 eventing year, the USEA Board and Staff would like to wish all of our members a happy Thanksgiving holiday. We all have so much to be thankful for and we at the USEA have even more to be grateful for: our members. Without you, there would be no USEA, so we thank each and every one of you and hope to have you with us in 2015. See you on course!
