The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce the partnership with Dressage TestPro for the 2021 USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC). As a Prize Level sponsor, Dressage TestPro will provide gift certificates as prizes for every AEC division. This year’s AEC will be held August 31-September 5 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Dressage TestPro is proud to support the USEA American Eventing Championships for the first time. Since launching TestPro in 2017, thousands of riders have learned their tests using the app and now eventers across the U.S. have the same opportunity! Dressage TestPro offers a unique interactive learning experience on [a] phone or iPad so that you never forget your test! We look forward to welcoming the prize winners into the TestPro team and hope everyone has a great time with their horses during the Championships,” said Tracy Ormrod, Co-Founder of Dressage TestPro.
Since 2017, Dressage TestPro has been the leading app for riders to learn and memorize dressage tests. Dressage TestPro offers several interactive features, and within the app users have the option to draw the test using their finger or tap the screen to have the app draw the movement itself. Users can also watch the dressage test from start to finish, listen to the dressage test play while riding, or pause, replay, fast forward any movement of the test.
“Dressage TestPro is one of the best apps for memorizing dressage tests,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “It is a wonderful resource for eventers of all levels and of all ages. It’s easy to use and makes learning dressage tests simple and fun. We are very thankful for the support of Tracy and her team at Dressage TestPro.”

The USEA Eventing Handbook by the Levels is an educational tool that was developed over the course of two years and is loaded with materials and resources targeted for all levels of eventing professionals, instructors, and coaches.
The USEA Future Event Horse Program (FEH) was introduced in 2007 to evaluate yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds for their suitability for the sport of eventing based on conformation and type. The FEH program also created a pipeline for horses to gain experience competing before attending USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) competitions.
The key to eventing’s success lies heavily in the organizers who put on our events. The USEA is proud to recognize each year the organizers who have made contributions to the sport through their organizational efforts. For 2021, the USEA Organizers Appreciation Honor Roll of Names honors nearly 200 organizers for five to 25+ years of service. The Blue Ribbon is awarded to those organizers with five to nine years of service, the Bronze Medal recognizes organizers with 10-14 years of service, organizers who have contributed 15-19 years of service are awarded the Silver Medal, those with 20-24 years of service will receive the Gold Medal, and a select few with 25 years or more of service as organizers are bestowed the title of Platinum Medal organizers.
