Medals

USEA Medal Program

The USEA Medal Program provides our members with recognition through a goal-oriented program within the various levels of eventing. Each individual member may earn a Bronze, Silver, and/or Gold Medal at the Beginner Novice, Novice, Training, Modified, and Preliminary levels. Horse and rider must achieve the qualifying scores as a pair.

To earn your medal you must submit the Medal Application to the USEA office. All scores from February 2009 until present can be submitted. Once the scores have been verified, the member or horse owner will be provided with the associated award for the medal achieved. Individual medal winners will earn a pin (at the level won) and certificate. The person's name will also be published on the USEA website and in the magazine. Award certificates and pins will be sent out quarterly to each rider and horse combination who achieves the appropriate qualifications. Click here for the Application Form.

Scores from any event since 2009 are accepted, but each member can only earn an award once. For example, if you have obtained a Beginner Novice Bronze Medal, you can not earn that award again even if the requirements are met. You can continue to strive for the Beginner Novice Silver and Gold medals, or medals for levels above.

If you have questions about the USEA Medal Program, please contact Cindy Clingman at [email protected] or (703) 779-9890.

Requirements

General Requirements

  • Beginning with results from February 2009 onward.
  • An individual must have a current USEA membership at the time scores are achieved.
  • A horse must be registered as required for the level at which it is competing.
  • No cross-country jump penalties are permitted for a score to be used in fulfillment of earning a medal, and all three phases must be completed.
  • The same score for one medal may be applied toward the next higher medal within the same level.
