2013 United States Eventing Association Appreciation Awards

By USEA

The US Eventing Awards Ceremony will be held at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 7th. This is an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horse and riders who excelled in Eventing throughout the year. It is also an opportunity to recognize these very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years.

While it is simple matter of tabulating points earned in a competition to arrive at horse and rider awards, it is a very different proposition when it comes to the non-rider awards; these awards require nominations from our members.

The Appreciation Awards Committee is currently accepting nominations for the awards listed here. If you know someone who is deserving of one of these awards, please submit your nominations for consideration to:

Diane Pitts, Chairman of the USEA Competitions Committee
c/o USEA Attn: Sharon Gallagher

Fax: (703) 779-0550.

  • COURTNEY C. Reeves Memorial Trophy: Awarded to the young individual who exemplifies sportsmanship, the spirit of the sport, and who gives back to the sport.
