The USEA recently held an auction on its Facebook page for a Novice cabin cross-country fence, generously donated by cross-country course builder, Eric Bull, of Scottsville, Va. Bull is one of the top course builders in the country and each October he builds the fences for the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships. It was one of these fences that Bull so kindly donated to the USEA to be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the USEA Collapsible Fence Study.

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.

The USEA is proud to announce that Ms. Jacqueline B. Mars has put forward a challenge to everyone who loves Eventing and wants to see it thrive in the coming years. Ms. Mars has agreed to donate $25,000 in 2016 if the USEA can raise a matching amount in the next six weeks to renew the study into collapsible fence technology.Why has Ms. Mars done this? She believes, like we do, that our riders and our horses deserve our best efforts to improve safety in the sport.

Thank you to those who participated in our Cardiopulmonary Research Group studies at Waredaca 2014, Horse Park of New Jersey Horse Trials I, 2015 and Fair Hill Horse Trials, 2015. Without your continued support, this study would not be possible. So far we have instrumented 65 horses in the Beginner Novice through Intermediate levels. We will be at the Plantation Field International CIC in September and the Fair Hill International Three-Day in October and still need volunteers at all levels.

The USEA would like to remind all eventers of the current rule regarding the use of body protectors on cross-country in USEA Recognized competitions as published in the USEF Rulebook. USEF Rule EV114.2 states:1. A body protecting vest must be worn warming-up for and in the cross-country test. Stable, team or club colors are permitted. The Federation recommends that the vest should pass or surpass the current ASTM standard F1937 or be certified by the Safety Equipment Institute. Inflatable vests are permitted only when worn over a body protecting vest.
