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 2018 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention. This year’s Annual Meeting & Convention features the USEA’s 7th Eventing Hall of Fame and will take place at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana, December 6-9, 2018.
“We are so excited to have Gallops Saddlery join us again this year! Diane Snow has been a strong supporter of Convention over the years,” said Jennifer Hardwick, Senior Director of Membership Services and the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention planner. “Thank you Gallops for continuing to support us – it means a lot.”
Gallops Saddlery has supported the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention for many years and continues to be a staple for eventers in the Northwest region of the United States. They have been expanding their market by providing tack, veterinary supplies, and fine gifts suited for all equestrians.
“Gallops Saddlery is pleased to support the USEA,” stated Diane Snow of Gallops Saddlery. “While focusing on eventers, Gallops also prides itself on being a full-service tack store. From custom helmets, boots, and more, we enjoy carrying the hard to find items that the discerning rider is after. Our mobile store travels all around the Northwest selling and sponsoring at most Area VII events. For personal assistance, call our toll free number (866) 893-0477 or visit our website at gallopssaddlery.com.”

Finding a penny on heads is pretty lucky, but finding a Penny that has a mane, tail, and talent to boot? Now that’s grounds for an eventing prospect. Mix a little luck and a lot of experience with the right opportunity and that’s the exact recipe that Area VII eventer Jacqueline Cameron found herself smack dab in the middle of in April 2021.
With less than 20 days remaining until the United States Eventing Association American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds at Rebecca Farm, to date over five hundred entries have been received. Entries for the event close on August 16, 2022. Those entrants in the AEC championship divisions this year are qualifying under the requirements that have been in place for the last several years. However, for those intending to compete at the 2023 AEC in Kentucky, the USEA Board of Governors have approved a strengthening to the qualification requirements.
The USEA Board of Governors (BOG) concluded a productive two days of the August BOG meeting on Wednesday, August 9th in Dulles, Virginia led by USEA President Max Corcoran. All but four BOG members were able to attend in person this year. Many key items related to eventing in the U.S. were discussed at great length including safety, membership strategies, competition procedures, visibility of the sport, and more over the course of the two-day gathering.
