#TopNine2018

Oh, what a year it has been! In 2018, USEA membership was at a record high with over 12,895 registered USEA members, and the 235 recognized events around the country received over 42,000 entries. The USEA traveled across the country, covering events all the way from the Maryland Horse Trials Beginner Novice Three-Day Event all the way to the Tryon 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games, capturing the heart and soul of eventing along the way. As we head into a new year, we invite you to look back on some of the highlights of 2018 and celebrate another year of eventing with the top 15 moments of 2018 from the USEA Instagram!

The VIP Volunteer: Jim Moyer

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
