The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to welcome back Gallops Saddlery as a Contributing Level Sponsor of the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention. This year’s Annual Meeting & Convention will take place at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts on December 12-15, 2019.
“As a longtime eventer, mother of an upper level eventer, and tack store owner, I am pleased to sponsor the United States Eventing Association. It is near and dear to our hearts,” said Diane Snow of Gallops Saddlery.
Gallops Saddlery first opened in 1992 in Tualatin, Oregon. Five years later, they expanded and moved down the road to their current location. Patty Cameron joined founding partner Diane Snow in 2001, and the pair has assembled a team of horse-loving employees focused on making customers and horses happy.
Headquartered in Oregon, Gallops Saddlery continues to be a staple for eventers in the Northwest region of the U.S. Gallops Saddlery provides apparel, horse tack, safety gear, horse clothing, horse care products, veterinary supplies, and fine gifts that are suitable for all equestrians.
“We are thrilled to continue the partnership with Gallops Saddlery for the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “It’s always a pleasure working with founder Diane Snow and her team of professionals. U.S. Eventing is lucky to have their continuous support – thank you, Gallops Saddlery!”

The USEA is saddened to report that Canadian eventer Holly Jacks-Smither's five-star horse More Inspiration died on Feb. 19. He was 18. Bred in Canada by Display Farm, the Thoroughbred gelding (Inspired Prospect x Gentle Buck) started 28 times at the track and had four wins.

Marley Bridges lived and breathed gymnastics. “I started at the age of 5,” said Bridges. “You always had to have the time and the mindset for gymnastics. You had to allow yourself to commit to it. You had to commit to working out four hours a day, five days a week, doing cardio every single day, train every single day. You had to stay committed to yourself, the team, and the sport.”
If you’re like most riders you’ve probably heard someone say something like, “Your last mistake is your best teacher,” or “if you’re doing everything right you’re doing something wrong because you’re in your comfort zone.” While I agree whole-heartedly with these sentiments, I actually prefer, “Equestrians don’t make mistakes. Mistakes make equestrians.” They make us bolder, braver, and brighter; but only when we develop a positive relationship with our mistakes and respond to them in productive ways.
