Last weekend, 25 prospective “r” judges, technical delegates, and course designers gathered at Lara Anderson and Daniel Brown’s Full Gallop Farm in Aiken, South Carolina for the B & C Jumping/Course Designing Training Program. This training program is a requirement for prospective “r” Eventing Judges, “r” Eventing TDs, and “r” Eventing CDs to obtain their licensure, as well as for certified cross-country course designers, who must attend every three years to maintain their certification.

Last year David Taylor, of Keymar, Maryland, realized he wanted to be more than just a competitive eventer. He wanted to give back to the sport but at the time he wasn’t sure how. It wasn't until he read an article on the United States Eventing Association (USEA) website about becoming a cross-country course designer that it finally clicked.

While the leaders of the four Professional’s Choice Training divisions went unchanged after tackling Captain Mark Phillips’ cross-country course, there are now four new Preliminary leaders after the completion of the first day of cross-country at the 2017 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Land Rover and Nutrena. As they say, it’s not over until it’s over, and these riders will show jump over Chris Barnard’s course tomorrow before we crown the winners of these divisions.Professional’s Choice Junior Training

The USEA Cross-Country Design and Fence Construction Safety Task Force is a dedicated group consisting of officials, course designers, engineers, organizers and competitors. The goal of the group is to constantly evaluate all safety aspects of the cross-country phase of competition including, but not limited to, design and construction of the fences and courses. Overall, the main focus of the task force is to reduce the risk of both rider and horse injuries and fatalities while in competition.

While it may have seemed like déjà vu with Boyd Martin standing on the top of the podium once again at the $75,000 Wellington Eventing Showcase, he thought that the 2016 event was a whole new ballgame.“This year was a much more competitive field,” said Martin. “It was a higher standard, the course was tougher and it was harder to win this year than last year, but saying that I knew that this horse, Blackfoot Mystery, had a good chance.”
