DiscoverEventing.com, the United States Eventing Association (USEA)’s sister site has recently gotten a complete overhaul with new pictures, updated information and an intuitive flow. Nearly a decade ago, the USEA launched Discover Eventing as a resource to educate new or potential eventers. It is also a great refresher course for current eventers!
The website starts with an introduction to the sport of eventing and goes on to explain each phase. Even if you aren’t interested in competing, but want to support the sport the website is a great tool. Discover Eventing educates readers about how to compete, volunteer, spectate, sponsor, own an event horse and even host an event.
If you have explored the sections about getting involved and decide you are ready to take the leap into competing, Discover Eventing will walk you step-by-step through the preparations for an event and throughout the day (or days) itself.
After you have dipped your toes in the water with a USEA educational activity or eventing test, then it is time to join the USEA! The last section of Discover Eventing explains the history behind the Association, the Areas the USEA is divided into and how to contact the USEA with any questions. Visit DiscoverEventing.com
