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.

Karma is developing into one of the fastest and most-reliable cross-country horses in the West. The 9-year-old bay Oldenburg mare and James Alliston won their third-straight blue ribbon together at either the four-star or Advanced level in the CCI4*-S at the Twin Rivers Fall International in Paso Robles, California, with the only double-clear cross-country round on Saturday.
Most couples share a kiss and part ways at 8:00 a.m. as they head off to their own work days, but eventing power couple James and Helen Alliston do it all together. We gave our USEA members the opportunity to submit their questions for this West Coast-based couple, and USEA Podcast host Nicole Brown gets them to share all on many topics: eventing in the U.S. versus the U.K., who is the most competitive of the two, dealing with warmer temperatures, why James likes to drive illegally slow, and so much more!
The Plantation Field International CCI4*-S concluded today with the cross-country phase, and the final standings were nearly a matter of “last one standing.” As Tropical Storm Ophelia brought a torrential downpour to the area, a number of riders decided to opt out: of 39 competitors, only six completed, and 17 withdrew before the start of cross-country.
After 15 years of successfully cultivating and establishing the Future Event Horse (FEH) program for eventing breeders and owners, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) has merged the FEH program with the Young Horse Show Series (YHS). The updated YHS allows for a more comprehensive show series for sport horses in the U.S., as the YHS is now open to young talent with a future in eventing, as well as hunters, jumpers, and dressage.
