After a one-year gap in 2020, international eventing competition will return to Morven Park this week starting Thursday, October 6, and running through Sunday, October 10. Not only will Morven Park see the return of their CCI2*-S, CCI3*-S, and CCI4*-S divisions, but for the first time ever the event is host to a CCI4*-L in which 26 top international competitors will battle it out for top honors. Add in their national divisions of Novice through Preliminary (which did run in 2020) into the mix and over 300 horse and rider duos will pay the historic property at Morven Park a visit this weekend in hopes of bringing home a blue ribbon.

The USEA is heartbroken to hear about the loss of James “Jimmy” C. Wofford. A lifelong lover and supporter of the sport, Wofford has had an astounding influence on where eventing is today and has tirelessly supported the goals of the United States Eventing Association. He served as president of the American Horse Show Association (now U.S. Equestrian (USEF)), was the first vice-president of the U.S. Equestrian Team (USET), and served as secretary of the USCTA (now USEA). He served two terms as a member of the FEI Eventing Committee, including two years as vice chairman. In addition, he has served on numerous committees during his career.

Amanda Walker wasn’t sure what she’d gotten herself into when she went to try Runaway Romeo as a potential sales project in 2018. The gelding was a bit bigger than Walker was looking for and was quite pushy coming out of the stall. When she got on, it didn’t get much better.
For seasoned and novice riders alike, it is always good to revisit the basics. Serving as the foundation for any eventer, the positions used on the cross-country course differ from those in the dressage or show jumping ring. The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
