Creating a balance of caring for longstanding events and welcoming new ones into the fold is the goal of the USEA and USEF as they create the calendar each year. With only so many competitors in the U.S.

For the first time in history, the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Final was run with cross-country as the last phase. When severe weather hit the USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Land Rover and Nutrena ® in Mill Spring, N.C. earlier in the week, the cross-country phase had to be postponed from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning due to the emergency vehicle access and allowing the footing time to dry out. This put a new twist on the Final as the top 10 pairs ran in reverse order of standing on cross-country.

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.
