The USEA's newly renovated online store www.shopusea.com just got a little better! ShopUSEA, which had been temporarily closed due to COVID-19, is now open for business once again. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a trying time for all, but ShopUSEA can bring a little bit of eventing spirit back into our lives.
The online store is now fully stocked with both new items and old favorites. With supplies that were set to be featured in the USEA merchandise booth at the 2020 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event before the event's cancellation, the USEA now has plenty of merchandise to go around. Fans and members can still get their shopping fix at ShopUSEA!
This summer, our partners at Ariat and Ovation have provided sun shirts to keep our community cool and sunburn free. Get yourself an Ariat sunstopper as well as an Ovation cool rider sun shirt for each day of the week. Our staff also particularly like the Ovation UV Sportflex shirt for keeping cool while riding in the sunshine.
The USEA is also featuring team apparel with the brand new USA Global Softshell, which is great for those cool mornings or late evenings at the barn. Members can also sport the patriotic Team Tri-Factor.
The USEA also has some new accessories that are great for birthday presents, Father’s Day gifts, or just for your own enjoyment. Check out the new USEA Tote styled in various colors, and the brand new featured USEA mug.
Did you miss out on getting your raincoats or winter jackets? Or if you’re looking ahead to next winter, don’t miss our Mountain Horse jacket collection with the MH Raincoat, MH Minoue, and the MH Montana.
There’s something for everyone at the USEA’s online store. Let’s all come together and proudly wear our U.S. Eventing gear as the eventing season starts back up. We look forward to seeing everyone out there!
My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.
Please always remain vigilant when it comes to sending any personal communications via email or text. Every year we receive reports of members and leaders of our sport receiving phishing attempts both online and by phone. These are often communications disguised as being sent from USEA staff or other leaders. As the years go on, the phishing attempts appear to be more directed and tailored.
Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
Following feedback from our membership to the rule change proposal for the USEF Rules For Eventing: Appendix 3 – Participation In Horse Trials, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Board of Governors voted to modify the rule change proposal, but still to recommend the establishment of rider licenses and increase Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MERs) to the regulating authority of the sport US Equestrian (USEF).
