The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is very pleased to announce the new inductees that will join the 40 other members of the USEA's Eventing Hall of Fame in 2018. This year, we will honor six inductees whose accomplishments and contributions have truly made a difference in the sport of eventing. The inductees will be formally inducted during the Hall of Fame Gala at the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana this December. We will be releasing the names of the six inductees over the coming month.

Out and About (“Outie”), a 16.2 hand dark bay Thoroughbred gelding (L'Amour Rullah x Incarnadine), was Kerry Millikin’s horse of a lifetime and one of the greatest eventing Thoroughbreds of all time.

Outie and Millikin traveled the world together, racking up numerous victories for the U.S., including an individual bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and team bronze and individual 15th at the 1998 World Equestrian Games in Rome, Italy. To add to their impressive resume, the pair also finished fifth at the Blenheim CCI3*, fifth at the Kentucky Three-Day Event, seventh in the Open European Championship at Burghley, and third at the Badminton CCI4*.

From Badminton, Burghley, Kentucky, and Blenheim to the Olympic Games and World Equestrian Games, Outie and Millikin did it all. Other than a handful of time faults, Outie’s cross-country record was nearly flawless. Never having a stop, runout, or any sort of trouble on course, Outie was the epitome of an eventing legend. Full of strength, talent, determination, and poise, this duo could accomplish anything.

Retiring from competition in 2000, Outie lived the rest of his years happy and carefree. In 2015, Outie passed away at the age of 28 (1987-2015). Acquiring the Thoroughbred off the racetrack at just 3 years old, Millikin and Outie spent 25 triumphant years together.

Stay tuned for the announcements of the remaining inductees!
