The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to welcome back longtime supporter Gallops Saddlery, headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, as a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2017 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. This year’s convention will take place at the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California, December 6-10, 2017.
"Gallops is a longtime supporter of eventing”, said Diane Snow of Gallops Saddlery. “Our mobile store sells at most of the Area VII events where we have a very devoted following. It makes sense to give back and to support the USEA."
Gallops Saddlery carries tack, clothing, veterinary, barn, and gift items for equestrians, with a focus on eventing, hunter/jumper, and dressage. Their mobile unit visits horse shows and events throughout the Northwest. Whether you’re looking for fun or functional, basic or blingy, Gallops has what you and your horse need.
“We are excited to see our partnership with Gallops Saddlery continue,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “The founding partners of Gallops Saddlery, Diane Snow and Patty Cameron, are lifelong eventers themselves and know what our members are looking for. Not only that, but they constantly give back to the sport through volunteerism. We are lucky to have them as partners.”

The CCI4*-S had an exciting shake-up of the top placings to finish out the International divisions at the Twin Rivers Fall International. It was Tamie Smith and Passepartout, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding (Pasco x Preschel) owned by Tamie's daughter Kaylawna Smith-Cook, who came out on top with the fastest cross-country time of the group. Ruth Bley’s 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding Danito (Dancier x Wie Musik) took second. Erin Kellerhouse and her own Woodford Reserve rounded out the top three.
Knowing what sort of support your horse needs can be tough, but it can also make a big difference. There’s a lot of confusion between your horse’s foregut health and hindgut health. After all, the process of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients is all technically “digestion,” so isn’t it all the same? Not quite. The organs in the foregut and hindgut have different functions, and each area has unique health concerns.
This year, the Area VI Championships took place on a sweltering weekend in Ramona, California at the Copper Meadows Horse Trials.
