The United States Eventing Asssociation (USEA) Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP), Future Event Horse (FEH) Program, and Young Event Horse (YEH) Program are teaming up once again to bring USEA members the ultimate educational opportunity in Florida this winter. Taking place February 18-21, 2019, the USEA Educational Symposium has found a new home at the impressive Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, Florida.
This year, Barnstaple South invites riders to their Fall Jackpot Schooling Show Series. At each schooling show, riders have the opportunity to clinic with our dressage judge on Day One and perform your test in front of them the following day in the show. Each dressage test is videoed with judge’s commentary thanks to Richard Equine Video. Jackpot!
Join Eric Dierks in a Livestream interview with Doug Payne.
Doug might be best known in the discipline of eventing as a member of the 2019 Pan American Games Eventing Gold Medal Team, where he also placed 4th individually. He has countless wins and top placings at all levels including a reserve national championship at the Kentucky CCI-5 Star.
A stalwart member of the U.S. Eventing squad since he was named USEA Young Rider of the Year in 2002, Faudree’s impressive resume has provided him the experiences to become asuccessful rider, trainer, and coach.
We have the cure for the wintertime COVID-19 blues . . . join us for a virtual show series! Ride from the comfort of home or your training stable. Use a smartphone or camera to capture your ride and submit it for judging.
Join Mary D'Arcy at Pine Hill in Bellville, Texas for a two-day clinic on November 21-22, 2020. Mary D'Arcy-O'Connell is a coach/trainer producing horses and riders for dressage, jumping, and eventing from Beginner Novice to the highest levels of international competition.
USEA ICP Level II certified instructor Gerry Lindsay and Dr. Liz Addison, DVM will be hosting a galloping and conditioning clinic at Oakhill Farm on Saturday, September 19, 2020. The aim of this clinic is to help riders master good cross-country riding skills and to allow horses to have a pipe-opener on excellent footing at a time of year when the ground is hard. This will be a perfect warm-up for the fall events!
The “Cross The Border Summer Camp” is just around the corner. Organized by Area II and Area III Young Riders, all USEA members are welcomed, young and old. Camp will be held July 21-25, 2020 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina. Riders from Areas II, III, V, and VIII are already registered – come join the fun.
The spring eventing season in the Midwest is always a toss-up due to unpredictable weather. Will it rain, will it be sunny, or will it be a snowstorm? No one knows! Mid-America Combined Training Association’s (MACTA) first cross-country schooling of the season was cancelled in March due to extremely muddy footing conditions and by the time our April dates came around, COVID-19 was in full force and we were unable to host our cross-country schooling and schooling show.
"No matter how old you are, be open to all disciplines, learn how to ride a dressage horse, a gaited horse, a show jumper. Go fox hunting and point-to-pointing and horse showing. You’ll learn from all of them and when you do decide which discipline you want to do, you’ll be better at it anyway.”
We are welcoming back Irish Olympian Joseph Murphy for an indoor clinic at Gavilan farm January 9 and 10, 2020. Come get a jump start on your 2020 season or just have a good, positive outing. Gavilan farm has a brand new 250 x 150 indoor arena where jump courses with unique exercise will be changed each day! Weather permitting Friday, January 10 can be outside on cross-country. Do not miss this opportunity to get out of the cold and train with the best!
