In March of 1973, the USCTA (now USEA) announced that a new award, the Frolicsome Trophy, would be given annually to the mare accumulating the largest number of points. Donated by Dr. Mary Alice Brown, the award was named in honor of her mare, Frolicsome, who was competed by J. Michael Plumb in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) Foundation is delighted to announce the formation of the Wilton Fair Fund, one million dollars donated by David and Cheryl Lenaburg to support U.S. developing riders. The Fund will allow up to $100,000 in grants to be given each year for a variety of educational opportunities for riders 29 and under who have not yet ridden for a senior team.

Eventing is a demanding sport both mentally and physically. The three different phases require intelligence, training and competing skills, and bravery.  At any competition level, an eventer can experience problems such as loss of confidence, fear of injury, inability to focus or to perform efficiently under pressure. Often, an individual is unaware of self-talk or habits that are counterproductive. Discussion with a qualified sports counselor can help that eventer develop the insight and desire to identify and implement more productive attitudes and behaviors.  This process can illuminate and enhance the eventer both as a person and as a rider.  The Worth the Trust Sports Psychology Scholarships have been created to provide event riders with this opportunity.
