On January 13, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. CST, join Eric Dierks for a live stream interview with Denny Emerson, where he will share some stories of his colorful past, as well as his insights as to what makes a successful rider today.
Denny is the only equestrian to have won both an international gold medal in eventing and a Tevis Cup buckle in endurance. In 1972, Denny was named United States Eventing Association’s Rider of the Year. He was a member of the United States Three-Day Eventing team that won the gold medal at the 1974 Eventing World Championships.
As of 2015, Emerson operates as a clinician and trainer. He is a regular contributor to The Chronicle of the Horse’s “Between Rounds” column. He and his wife, May Emerson, run Tamarack Hill Farm in Strafford, Vermont and Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Nestled in the heart of St. Louis County is Queeny Park, the former estate of the late Mr. and Mrs. Edgar M. Queeny. This gorgeous public park features trails, playgrounds, tennis courts, a dog park, and so much more. On any given day you can find cyclists, walkers, families, and more enjoying the sprawling grounds of Queeny Park, but once a year eventers take over as the park hosts the Queeny Park Horse Trials. It is not uncommon for park visitors to watch from a safe distance as horses gallop across the grounds at Queeny Park, making it an event that truly anyone in the community can enjoy. This family-friendly staple in the St. Louis equestrian community has run for over 40 years, offering eventers in Area IV and beyond the opportunity to enjoy the park's ample space and terrain during the weekend-long event.
