#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and is recognized as the day when the world community turns its mind to donating to the charity closest to their hearts and minds.
By supporting the USEA Foundation Roger Haller Fund for the Education of Eventing Officials you can help us “double our impact” and meet the challenge set this year by our wonderful anonymous donor who has set excellence in eventing education as a top priority. We need to raise just $10,000 more to reach our goal.
Thanks to everyone who supported this fund in 2016, the USEA Foundation was able to award two grants to two Eventing Officials who made the very best use of every grant dollar to reach their goals. Every rider in the sport will be the beneficiary of their expertise in years to come and for that we thank you, our donors and our friends.
At the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention in December, two additional grants will be awarded to course designers to enable them to increase their knowledge and proficiency and ensure that the U.S. has the highest caliber of designers well into the future. Again, this was all made possible by you, our donors.
So, on the day when the world turns its thoughts to giving, please consider making a donation in support of the Roger Haller Fund for the Education of Eventing Officials and telling our anonymous challenger that you join with them in your commitment to excellence in eventing education.

My road to success is a bit different and quite a bit longer than most. Hi, my name is Jennarose Ortmeyer. I am 24 years old and my eventing journey started three years ago in the summer of 2017. Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, I moved to North Carolina in June of 2017 seeking to further my career. I was a professional in the hunter/jumper world then and I hadn’t the faintest idea of how drastically my life was about to change.
How competitive have your Training results been? What’s a good dressage score? What scores could earn you a top finish? We’ve been taking a look at each USEA level and as we continue this series, EquiRatings offers some stats and graphs to help evaluate your Training game.
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.
