Announcing a New USEA Educational Partner, #WeRideTogether

By Claire Kelley - USEA Staff

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the new partnership with WeRideTogether, Inc. WeRideTogether is a non-profit organization committed to helping make all sports safer for youth, amateur, and professionals athletes and will join as an ‘Official USEA Educational Partner.’

“We are so grateful for organizations like [the] USEA who understand the importance of education and awareness around the difficult subject of sexual misconduct, and are committed to making change,” said Carrie Kehring, Founder of WeRideTogether. “We look forward to connecting more deeply with the eventing community.”

Created in 2021 to shine a light on the endemic issue of sexual abuse in youth sports, WeRideTogether launched as an awareness campaign and educational website designed to empower, inform and unite the equestrian community around sexual misconduct prevention. Showcasing powerful first-person interviews from sexual abuse survivors, WeRideTogether.today promotes transparent dialogue around sexual misconduct, raises awareness for the many forms grooming and abuse can take and helps diminish the stigma and fear of coming forward by giving survivors a safe platform to share their voices.

“The USEA is very excited to form this new partnership with WeRideTogether,” said the USEA CEO Rob Burk. “We fully support their mission and we are proud to welcome them on board as an official partner of the USEA!”
