One of the tenets of the USEA Mission is to promote the safety and welfare of both horse and rider in the sport of eventing. As part of that effort, the USEA formed the Cross-Country Safety Task Force in 2014 underneath the umbrella of the Safety Committee to examine and improve cross-country obstacle and design safety.
