Blue Ribbon Award + Horse & Rider Achievement

Blue Ribbon Award Program

The Blue Ribbon Program is a stepping stone to achieving the Eventing Medals and then heading to the top of the leaderboard. The USEA will post the names of Blue Ribbon qualified horses and riders on the awards section of the USEA website on a monthly basis. Award certificates will be sent out quarterly to each rider who achieves the appropriate qualifications.

To qualify for the Blue Ribbon Award which is available at the Beginner Novice through Advanced levels a horse and rider combination must place first through third at three events in the same level in a single year. In addition, both the horse and rider must have an active USEA membership at the time of their competitions.

Blue Ribbon Award Requirements:

  • The horse and rider (team) must be qualified together.
  • The horse and rider must have an active USEA membership at the time of the competitions.
  • The horse and rider must place 1st through 3rd at three events in the same level (Beginner Novice through Advanced) during the same competition year.

Certificate of Horse & Rider Achievement

The Certificate of Horse & Rider Achievement is an opportunity to award and recognize our Beginner Novice members for successfully completing events. In order to qualify for the Certificate of Horse & Rider Achievement the horse and rider together must have completed three or more events at the Beginner Novice level during the same competition year. In addition, both the horse and rider must have an active USEA membership at the time of their competitions.

Beginner Novice Horse and Riders who have achieved the next award level, the Blue Ribbon Award, will not receive the Certificate of Horse and Rider Achievement.

The USEA will automatically post the names of qualified horses and riders on the awards section of the USEA website on a weekly basis. Award certificates will also be sent out monthly to each rider who achieves the appropriate qualifications.

The Certificate of Horse and Rider Achievement Award is only for the Beginner Novice level and is based purely on completion of events.
