Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Community Conversations: Horses in Black Communities

By USEF - Edited Press Release

US Equestrian will offer a new Community Conversations series dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). These DEI Community Conversations will serve as a forum for raising awareness about the various experiences and issues affecting equestrians from under-represented or under-served communities. The series aims to lift traditionally marginalized voices from the equestrian community, and beyond, while building community across the broad network of horse sport enthusiasts.

In honor of Black History Month, the series will kick off with “Horses in Black Communities” on Monday, February 22, from 5-6:30 p.m. ET. Panelists Dr. Anastasia Curwood, Kareem Rosser, and Caitlin Gooch will discuss key moments in U.S. history for Black Americans and explore the impact Black Americans have had on the equestrian industry so far. The panelists will also speak to the value that horses and horse sports can bring to Black communities. The session will conclude with panelists responding to audience questions. Learn more about the panelists.

Questions submitted prior to the session will be prioritized and questions submitted live in the Q&A feature during the discussion will be answered if time permits.
