USEA Area II announces its annual fundraising auction online is open for bidding! This fundraiser is over 20 years old and now well-known as the "Black Friday" for entries to ALL your favorite events! In typical years, the auction is held as a silent auction at the Annual Area Meeting, but because of COVID-19 restrictions, no in-person meeting will be held, so we're bringing the auction to everyone online this year.
The USEA’s Area II is currently accepting applications for the Young Rider Team Coach for 2013. The current team coaches are stepping down after the 2012 season, and Area II would like to open the search up to anyone who is qualified and interested.
Area II is pleased announced the sites for this year’s Area Championships. The Area II Council has decided to consolidate the Championships as much as possible. After receiving bids from a number of organizers, it was decided that the upper level Area Championships will be held at Plantation Field Horse Trials in September to coincide with its CIC competitions.
As part of the fund raising effort for the USEA Area II Adult Rider Training Level Three-Day at Waredaca, Pat Mansfield (and the rest of the T3DE supporters) has recently signed up for the S.H.O.W. program with Southern States.
The only exclusive event stallion auction in the world is taking place right now at the Area II website. It's an online auction of donated eventing stallion services to benefit the Area II Young Riders program.
