USEA Medal Program, founded in 2009, aims to recognize riders who steadily work to hone their skills at the Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels. Medals won are a testament to a high level of proficiency achieved. These are awarded to a rider who finishes three horse trials at a particular level with a final score below a preset requirement (i.e. for a Novice Bronze medal you must finish on a score of a 50 or below). Each of the final scores must be earned at separate locations, and all scores counting toward the medal program must include zero cross-country jump penalties.

2016 was another memorable year for the U.S. Eventing Association. As outgoing President Diane Pitts reported at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention, starter, membership and competition numbers were up this year, but most importantly was that 2016 saw another year of love for horses and the sport of eventing. To celebrate, we’ve decided to look back on some of the most popular Instagram photos from 2016: Boyd Martin and his off-the-track powerhouse, Blackfoot Mystery, putting in a smashing round in Rio.

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was created in 2014, and has since taken off with over forty schools affiliated and more than 100 members registered as collegiate riders. One of the biggest milestones of the program was the introduction of the Intercollegiate Leaderboard in 2016. This let college riders earn points at competitions around the country which reflected in their year-end status on the leaderboard. It worked much in the way that the amateur and junior leaderboards worked, and there was an Intercollegiate listing for each level.
