2017 USEA Area Town Hall Meetings

By Shelby Allen - USEA Staff

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:

  • Eventing Costs
  • Growing the Number of Eventers
  • 21st Century Sport/Business
  • Safety
  • Calendar of Events
  • Education
  • Organizing Events
  • Professionals
  • Amateurs
  • Other points that members feel need to be addressed

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.

Inaugural McKinlaigh Cup and Twin Rivers CCI4*-L Title Goes to Amber Levine and Cinzano

"Too plain" is not a description that fits today's wire-to-wire winner of the Twin Rivers Spring International's inaugural CCI4*-L. But that's what Amber Levine heard five years ago after importing the now 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Classe VDL x Walta) as a sales prospect. So, she kept him. His long-delayed debut at the CCI4*-L level proved the wisdom of that decision.

Cinzano Keeps Twin Rivers CCI4*-L Top Spot Secure

At the second-to-last of 40 efforts, "I thought, 'This is actually happening,'" said Amber Levine of a faultless finish with Cellar Farm's Cinzano today to stay on their 31.5 lead going into show jumping tomorrow morning in the Twin Rivers Spring International CCI4*-L. The Jeffs Hot Tub Waves complex at 19 a/b was the awkward exception to a Hugh Lochore-designed course that otherwise "rode great" for the 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Classe VDL x Walta) in his long-delayed debut at the level. An entirely new portion of the course around the racetrack featured a series of bright-white painted obstacles, but nothing distracted Cinzano's "tunnel vision for those flags." Levine expects a similar game attitude tomorrow and has a rail to spare.
