The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is soliciting proposals from qualified parties interested in producing or providing Event Management Software (EMS) for our competitions to the USEA and its members. EMS is used by organizers and event secretaries for all behind the scenes aspects of running an event including scheduling, exporting reports, labels, communication, etc. Up-to-the minute, live, online scoring is also an integral part of the EMS.

The time has come to take a stronger stance on the usage of frangible technology in the sport of eventing. We as the leaders of the sport have the moral obligation to say that the time for use of all currently available safety technology is now. With that in mind, the USEA Cross-Country Safety Sub-Committee strongly recommends that the FEI mandates rather than strongly recommends that all open rail fences, gates, oxers and oxer corners must be built using reverse frangible technology. The time is now.

The FEI published a clarification of the rules governing bits on July 31, 2017. An illustrated list of permissible bits for FEI dressage can be viewed here. Janis Linnan, Steward General for Eventing with US Equestrian, explains that, in an effort to bring the USEF bit rules into compliance with what is currently permitted by the FEI, these new rules will hopefully be approved for USEF competition in January and go into effect during the 2018 calendar year.
