Course builder, Eric Bull, has generously donated one this Novice level cross-country cabin to the USEA to be auctioned off with all proceeds going to support the USEA Collapsible Fence Study to ensure that we raise sufficient funds to meet the $25,000 challenge set by Ms. Jacqueline B. Mars.
Eric has built courses for the world’s top designers and is in great demand because of his commitment to superior construction using the very best materials possible.
A fence like this one would normally sell for $900 - $1,000 so Eric has established a reserve of $500. This cabin was used on course at the Young Event Horse Championship this fall. It would be a super addition to your own schooling field, or if you are an organizer to your Novice cross-country course. Companies and/or individuals who want to sponsor a fence at a USEA Horse Trials may want to bid on the fence and have it delivered to the horse trials of their choice. The successful bidder will pick up the fence or pay for shipping.

US Equestrian has announced the nomination of the following athlete-and-horse combinations to the U.S. Eventing Team, as well as the Reserves for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games. Three direct reserve horses have also been named. A direct reserve horse would be an automatic replacement should the original horse on which an athlete was named need to be substituted.
A combination that can be found on almost every cross-country course starting at the Novice level is the coffin combination. As the levels go up, so does the difficulty of the coffin question. The distances become shorter, coffins become bigger, and the terrain becomes steeper - even the name itself sounds intimidating.
The dressage test is the first of the three phases in eventing. Intended to demonstrate "the harmonious development of the physique and ability of the horse," the dressage test contains a prescribed list of movements to be carried out in front of a judge, or judges, and which is then given a penalty score that horse and rider carry through to the end of the competition.
On Sunday, June 16, Molly Sullivan and Kate Swain were named the two winners of the Charles Owen Technical Merit award for Area IX at Golden Spike Horse Trials.
