Rebecca Farm

The USEA Foundation is excited to announce that the Broussard Charitable Foundation has approved an increase in the amount of the Rebecca Broussard International Developing Grant from $30,000 to $50,000. The grant is in memory of one the sport’s greatest benefactors, Rebecca Broussard, who passed away in 2010, and is awarded to assist and encourage the development of event riders at the highest level of the sport.  These grants will be awarded to offset some of the travel and training expenses in the pursuit of achieving the qualities of an international rider.

My name is Cortney McDaniel, I am a 28-year-old 911 dispatcher for the North King County area in Washington state. We dispatch for six police agencies and 14 fire departments (56 fire stations). On average, we take about 700 calls a day. I started this career as a stepping stone to eventually become a police officer in the Seattle area and then becoming an officer on the equestrian mounted patrol division. After finding out that the Seattle mounted patrol is no longer, I decided to remain as a dispatcher at NORCOM.

The Charles Owen Technical Merit Award was established in 2009 by the USEA Professional Horseman’s Council (PHC) to encourage safe and appropriate cross-country riding technique. The award is presented at a series of events throughout the year at the Training level to one junior rider and one adult amateur rider who demonstrate technique on cross-country for a list of criteria including gallop, preparation, execution of jump, rider position, and general impressions.

Eventers are known for helping each other out and when Erin Sylvester decided to head west to compete in The Event at Rebecca Farm, she texted Tamra Smith and asked if she would be willing to give her some support throughout the week. Smith readily agreed and both the student and the teacher were rewarded with leading three-star victory gallops today. Smith topped the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* with Judith McSwain’s Fleeceworks Royal while Sylvester jumped a beautiful clear show jump round to win the third annual CCI3* with Frank Macentee’s Paddy the Caddy – both with impressive leads.

Tamra Smith rode Judith McSwain’s Fleeceworks Royal clear around the Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* cross-country track with 10.4 time faults, and still managed to maintain their overnight lead. The 8-year-old Holsteiner mare by Riverman and out of Marisol had scored a 42.6 in dressage yesterday, claiming an eight point lead over the second-placed pair, so she had some room to spare, and Smith chose to run the horse a bit slow and take her time on course today.
