The USEA is sorry to announce that there will be no USEA Educational Symposium held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The USEA Educational Symposium is hosted annually each February as a week of learning for participants and auditors.
Established in 2004 as an eventing talent search like similar events in Europe, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Young Event Horse (YEH) Program was designed to identify young horses that possess the talent and disposition to, with proper training, excel at the uppermost levels of the sport.
The USEA Year-End Awards Ceremony is held annually during the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in December. This year, with the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention being held virtually, the decision was made to host a special virtual Year-End Awards Ceremony as well. At 6:30 p.m. ET on Friday, January 8, the eventing community gathered virtually to celebrate the accomplishments of its members in 2020.
The USEA invites everyone to join the greatest eventing celebration that takes place every year – the USEA National Year-End Awards Ceremony! Taking place the evening before the first event of 2021, the 2020 USEA Year-End Awards Ceremony will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar on Friday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time.
At the risk of stating the obvious, most of us who event do so because we enjoy jumping. But most of us could stand a bit of improvement, whether in the way we ride, in the way our horse goes, or both. Additionally, most of us will at some point be faced with the task of starting a green horse or re-schooling a horse that has developed problems over fences.
Now that the 2020 USEA Annual Meeting of Members has come to a close, it’s time to celebrate the 2020 year-end award winners! Taking place the evening before the first event of 2021, the 2020 USEA Year-End Awards Ceremony will be held virtually via Zoom Webinar on Friday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time.
While 2020 has been unexpectedly challenging, the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program found a silver lining and had several positive outcomes and record-breaking results this past year. With high turnout in both the YEH qualifiers and The Dutta Corp. USEA YEH Championships to the extraordinary achievements of the YEH graduates, it was a good year for the YEH program.
The Sunday morning Board of Governors typically closes out the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, but this year the meeting was held over three hours on Tuesday night via Zoom Webinar. With an extensive agenda to cover, the USEA Board, including the four new members who were elected at Saturday’s Annual Meeting, made motions, voted, and fairly conducted the business of the Association.
Traditionally, two USEA Board of Governors meetings are held during the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention that takes place every December. This year, with the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention being held virtually, the two Board of Governors meetings have been condensed into one and will be held virtually tomorrow, Tuesday, December 15 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time via Zoom.
The 2020 USEA Virtual Annual Meeting was an experience unlike any other, and over 210 people attended Saturday’s meeting. Not only was Saturday’s Annual Meeting and keynote address a success, but in coordination with various sponsors and partners, the USEA was able to bring its members and followers additional educational experiences.
Every year, the USEA hosts its Annual Meeting to celebrate the sport and bring together its members. This year's Annual Meeting and & Keynote Address was held virtually via Zoom, and for the first time ever the full meeting is available to be viewed on demand! The Annual Meeting reviews the past year in eventing and future goals for 2021.
