The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is thrilled to announce the new partnership with Barnstaple South as the official host site for the 2020 USEA Educational Symposium. The 2020 USEA Educational Symposium will be on February 17-20 in Ocala, Florida and will cover three USEA programs – the Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP), Young Event Horse Program (YEH), and Future Event Horse Program (FEH).
"Barnstaple South is looking forward to hosting the 2020 USEA Educational Symposium in Ocala and showcasing our training venue to judges and clinicians from around the country and world,” said Derek Strine, owner of Barnstaple South.
Considered to be one of the best new schooling facilities in Ocala, Barnstaple South is an event horse training facility in the heart of Ocala’s horse country, just behind HITS. Sitting on 80 acres, Barnstaple South has everything for an eventer – portable fences, irrigation, ditches, banks, logs, a viewing tower, barns with living quarters, and a covered arena with immaculate footing.
“We are very excited for this new partnership with Derek and Barnstaple South,” said Kate Lokey, USEA Director of Programs and Marketing. “Derek has created a top-class training facility and we encourage everyone to see for themselves at the 2020 Symposium!”
