With the addition of the CCI5*-L at Fair Hill International beginning in 2020 and with considerable interest from organizers in exploring options for other dates and venues for CCI4*-L in both the spring and the autumn, the US Equestrian Eventing Sport Committee has unanimously decided to issue a Request for Expressions of Interest/Bid Applications from organizers.

Additionally, with the withdrawal of the Great Meadow application to run a FEI Eventing Nations Cup (CCIO4*-S), the Eventing Sport Committee is seeking to determine if there are organizers interested in submitting an application to the FEI to add Nations Cup to the US Eventing Calendar.

Please pay close attention to the fact that you must submit three dates in ranked order preference as well as indicate any blackout date(s) which are within two weeks prior to or following each of the dates you have submitted, including the reason a competition would be unable to run on the date(s) indicated. You are also encouraged to submit letters of support from members of your community and/or athletes who would support the concept of either of these levels at the specific venue.

The applications are located in your competition management dashboard accessed through your competition ID. Please complete the information in its entirety and return it to the Eventing Department by no later than close of business March 15, 2019.

The timeline will be as follows:

  • January 29, 2019 - Distribution of Bid Document
  • March 15, 2019 - Deadline for Submissions of Bids
  • Open Comment Period
  • April 12, 2019 - Close of time period for Open Comments
  • April 12-May 14, 2019 - USEA and USEF Committee Review

Questions should be directed to Joanie Morris at [email protected] or Shealagh Costello at [email protected].
