All Areas are encouraged to host a town hall meeting once again! Come share your opinions and suggestions on the issues facing our sport. Town hall meetings are be free and open to all with a stake in U.S. Eventing.
This post will be updated to reflect the exact time when it is announced. Light snacks and water will be provided.
The town halls will be structured in such a way that all those present will be given the opportunity to speak in an open and respectful forum. All input will be compiled by the USEA for future consideration and/or implementation.
Topics discussed during the town hall will most likely include:
In 2016, following the Sports Summit hosted the year prior, each USEA Area hosted Town Hall style meeting to allow members to discuss the issues they feel are most important. Last year’s meetings lead to a flourish of discussion and idea sharing. Because of this, the USEA is encouraging Areas to continue to host Town Hall meetings in 2017.
Information gathered from these discussions was gathered and presented at the 2016 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. This resulted in a project tracker, where every single recommendation put forward in 2016 has been logged in addition to the responsible parties, categories and progress reports. You can view the entire document here.

Get to know each United States Eventing Association (USEA) Areas a little better in this new series, Meet the Areas! This month’s feature is USEA Area I which is comprised of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Founded in the 1960s, Area I was the birthplace of the United States Combined Training Association (USCTA) which was founded in 1959 and would later evolve into the USEA in 2001. In 2021 just under 800 members made up the membership count in Area I.
Trainers, riders, parents, and more are in for a real treat when the all-new USEA Eventing Handbook by the Levels is officially released. Those participating in the 2022 USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) Symposium at Barnstaple South Farm in Ocala, Florida on February 8-9 will be the first to set eyes on this all-encompassing guide that has been two years in the making.
The USEA established the Young Event Horse (YEH) program in 2004 to identify young horses that possess the talent and disposition to, with proper training, excel at the uppermost levels of the sport. While the goal of the YEH program is to identify horses that will be successful at the four- and five-star levels, horses with the potential for lower-level success are also showcased by the program.
