The 2022 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention is just two months away in Savannah, GA, where members will converge to recollect on another fantastic year of eventing together! All USEA members are invited to join us in Area III for a week of educational seminars, committee meetings, open forums, annual awards and the 8th edition of the USEA Eventing Hall of Fame induction ceremony from December 7-11, 2022.

Looking for activities to enjoy while you are in town for the convention? The Hyatt Regency Savannah Hotel is located in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District, which is within blocks of several shopping, dining, museum and nightlife options. Savannah’s ultimate gathering spot, Forsyth Park, is the perfect place to unwind after a full day of education! Take a walk through the lush greenery and Spanish moss-draped live oaks to visit the 150-year-old Forsyth Park fountain. Savannah’s City Market is another must-visit location where you can enjoy a meal to remember with fellow members, shop for souvenirs, or celebrate the culture and local artwork of the city.

Trolley tours, ghost walks, riverboat cruises and historic state parks are just a few popular activities for tourists to enjoy. Soak up the sun at gorgeous golf courses designed by legendary players like Arnold Palmer, or simply stick to River Street. Other popular attractions like Tybee Island are only half an hour away!

Memories from the Vet Box with Max Corcoran

When super groom Max Corcoran mentioned in 2005 that it would be fun to participate in a USEA Classic Series event, her employer and eventing legend Karen O’Connor took that to heart. “I did a lot of grooming for the classic format when Kentucky and all those other competitions were proper long format,” Corcoran shared. “When Gretchen [Butts] started offering the Classic Series at Waredaca [Gaithersburg, Maryland,] she asked if I would come up and do some lectures to help people understand what the 10-minute box was and how to pack for it. I did that a few times and said to Karen, ‘Man, it would be so fun to do one of these.’ And so Karen's like, 'You want to do one? Yeah, you're gonna do one next year.'”

Conformation Critique with Chris Ryan: Stella

Has this horse quality? The answer is definitely yes. This first impression is so important. As a selector for the Goresbridge Go for Gold Event horse sale, I have an abbreviation ‘GPO’ which stands for "Good Pull Out." It means that the first look prompts the potential client the need to bring the horse out of his box for a further look.
