For the past several months we’ve been discussing limiting beliefs, those unintentional negative thoughts that have a tricky way of sneaking into your brain and limiting your ability to believe in yourself. There’s no limit to the number of different ways limiting beliefs can pop into your head, but one of the most common is as a blindspot bias - a negative thoughts that’s there - even though you don’t think it’s there (like a car hiding in your vehicle’s blindspot).

The Worth The Trust Scholarship is important to me so that I can continue to follow my lifelong dream of becoming a good horseperson. Owning, training, and eventing has been my dream since I was a child. At that time, I saved every Christmas and birthday gift and all my babysitting money to take riding lessons at a local eventing barn in central New Jersey. I worked for lessons and tried to pick up any ride I could. I had a long hiatus from riding through college, graduate school, and my early career.

The Equine Medical Research Fund was created in 2014 to provide consistent funding for equine medical research. A $1.00 starter fee was added to each USEA recognized event entry beginning in 2014, and at year’s end those dollars were distributed through the Morris Animal Foundation, which assists the USEA with selecting studies to fund, monitoring the funds, and reporting on progress.

The USEA is now accepting nominations for the 2018 USEA Appreciation Awards. This is an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horses and riders who excelled in eventing throughout the year and honor the very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years.

“Volunteers are the backbone of our sport because if we had to pay every person that’s needed to run an event, the entry fee would be up to $2,000 a horse.” Christina Gray explained. “It’s astronomical the number of volunteers that are needed to do this sport but it’s what makes the sport so great.” A show secretary extraordinaire and a newly minted FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) volunteer, Gray has been on both sides of the volunteer curtain.

Last winter, the organizers of the Genesee Valley Riding and Driving Club Horse Trials made the decision last winter to offer a Modified division at our event in August. We run a small event and knew entries would be limited but felt that the quality of what we offer, combined with the novelty of being the first to do so in Area I, made it an attractive prospect. Plus, a few members had asked us to do it!

Hello, my name is Emily Worth and today I am writing to tell you about my experience with the long format three-day event. I live in Selma, North Carolina, and am 15 years old. Three years ago, in 2015, I competed in an assisted Beginner Novice division, and while I was there I got to see the long format being run. It looked like a lot of fun and seemed like an amazing opportunity. For the next two years, it became one of my long-term goals to compete in one. I was having trouble with my horse at our level, so unfortunately, that dream got pushed back for a little while.
