New Market, Tennessee – River Glen Horse Trials and the USEA are saddened to report that the 9-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, All Aboard, ridden and owned by Audrea Dyer collapsed and died on course during the Open Intermediate Division of the River Glen June Horse Trials today. The rider was unhurt.
All Aboard will undergo necropsy. Samples were collected and will be analyzed as a part of the ongoing USEA Cardiopulmonary Research Study. Our thoughts are with all of the connections to All Aboard at this difficult time.
The FEI has published its Policy for Enhanced Competition Safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, aimed at assisting organizers and national federations with the safe resumption of international equestrian events in line with national and local restrictions.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has approved additional modifications to the qualification period for the 2020 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The AEC is scheduled to take place August 25-30, 2020 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, and the USEA is doing everything possible to ensure a safe and successful Championship, while also ensuring fair opportunities for all.
This article will be updated to include statements as they are released from upcoming USEA recognized events regarding actions they are taking due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
