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.
