The same year Karen Lende (now O’Connor) finished third on Biko and Phillip Dutton earned the sixth spot on True Blue Girdwood.

True or false: only recognized horse trials can be registered with the USEA and US Equestrian (formerly USEF)? The correct answer is false! The USEA allows eventing organizers to register eventing tests with the USEA when they do not want to run a full USEA Recognized Horse Trial. A number of positive benefits come with this registration and these tests are excellent opportunities to introduce new riders and horses to the sport.
