Copper Meadows Eventing will host their 2nd annual Fundraising event June 5-6, 2021. The Copper Meadows Fundraiser was a great success in 2019, and we look forward to an even bigger event this summer. All funds raised to go improvements to our facilities, cross-country course, and both our recognized and unrecognized events: 2019 funds allowed for Copper to add footing to our main dressage competition arena, as well as the warmup, and we added a bank to our show jumping warm-up arena to benefit our derbies! Join us with an All-Inclusive weekend pass, which gets riders access to unlimited judged dressage tests, show jumping rounds, and cross-country schooling, as well as a dinner on June 5th with an impressive silent auction and live raffle.
Grand Prix dressage riders Terri Rocovich and Tiffany Silverman will be on-site judging dressage tests June 5 and 6, respectively, with times spaced 8 minutes apart to allow for feedback after each test. There will be a long and a short court available, and the arena will be open to Eventing and USDF tests. Show jumping will run by level, with courses designed by FEI show jump designer Jose Nava. Cross-country will be show prepped: flowers, flags, and footing drug for schooling. Local trainers will be on-site and available for help with schooling all weekend, please visit our website to see a list of trainers who are attending.
The All-Inclusive Pass is $350 for both days or $200 for one day; each option includes the Saturday night dinner catered by Nutmeg Cafe. Additional dinner tickets can be purchased for $20/each. Raffle tickets are 5 for $20, raffle ticket purchasers do not need to be onsite to win raffle items! We will broadcast the raffle live on Facebook: buy tickets via Venmo and tune in live to see what you win! Great silent auction items available for bid, including An incredible riding, dining, and lodging package from Lavender & Olive, a Horse Trials entry to a future Copper Meadows recognized event, lessons from our area’s top coaches and riders, MMA lessons from a UFC Ultimate Fighter winning athlete, autographed collectibles from 5* eventers, and so much more.

The USEA Eventing Coaches Program (ECP) has initiated a renewed focus on the diverse challenges coaches in various regions of the country may be facing. To this end, the program is in the process of enlisting representatives in each of the 10 USEA areas to help guide the program as warranted for the unique needs of each specific area.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has opened nominations for the annual appreciation awards through Oct. 29. This is an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horses and riders who excelled in eventing throughout the year. It is also an opportunity to recognize and honor the very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years.
Anticipation for the 2024 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship and inaugural USEA Interscholastic Eventing League (IEL) Championship is growing, and the host venue, Stable View, is up for the task of making both events an unforgettable experience for all involved. For the first time, the Intercollegiate and IEL program championships will be hosted on the same weekend at the Stable View H.T. in Aiken, South Carolina, on May 4-5, 2024, creating greater unity between the programs and demonstrating a clear pipeline of participation in the sport from grade school through college and beyond.
The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) has made five rule changes which will go into effect October 1, 2023. Familiarize yourself with these rule changes below to make sure you are in compliance before heading out for your next event.
