#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!

Grid Pro Quo with Alyssa Peterson

From the time we begin jumping, we are always working on perfecting the canter. Throughout my career I’ve been lucky to train with a variety of top professionals and each had their tried and true method for developing the right canter to jump a clear round. The best instructors have their own methods for helping their students recognize this “perfect” canter.
