Just like that, the second month of 2022 is upon us! As you prepare for the start of your eventing season, be sure to take a moment to update your information on your USEA Online Services account. Important details that should be current include your phone number, email, and home address, but it is also wise to take a moment and update your horse’s profile as well!
Updating this information is easy. The first step is to log in to your USEA Online Services account. Once logged in, there are two different sections that might need to update: your profile and your related horses.
Updating Your Profile
To update your name, general contact information, address, emergency contact information, and more, you will want to click on Edit My Profile under the User Profile section at the top of the page. From there, you will have the ability to input new information regarding your basic information. Remember to update your address if you move in order to receive your copy of Eventing USA magazine.
Updating Your Related Horses
Keeping the profiles of your related horses updated is essential for proper record-keeping, plus it allows the USEA and the events at which you compete to pull accurate information on your horse! The USEA encourages all owners and competitors to input as much information about their horse as they possibly can, including breeder name, sire, dam, and height (especially important for pony awards).
Making these updates is also as simple as clicking a button. From your USEA Online Services account, scroll down to the Horses section and click My Related Horses to edit your horse’s profile, submit a name change, upload current coggins, change their registration level, update general information regarding your horse, and more. From that screen, you can click the pen and paper to edit your horse’s details, click the pdf to access your horse’s full competition record, click the arrows to change the owner, or click the identification card to view and/or print your horse’s ID card.
Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to make these quick and easy updates before you jump into your 2022 competition season!
Amanda Walker wasn’t sure what she’d gotten herself into when she went to try Runaway Romeo as a potential sales project in 2018. The gelding was a bit bigger than Walker was looking for and was quite pushy coming out of the stall. When she got on, it didn’t get much better.
For seasoned and novice riders alike, it is always good to revisit the basics. Serving as the foundation for any eventer, the positions used on the cross-country course differ from those in the dressage or show jumping ring. The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
The USEF's main phone number and fax number have changed. We wanted to notify you so you continue to get the support you need.
