This #GivingTuesday the USEA Foundation is placing the focus on horsemanship and the care of our equine partners. USEA President Max Corcoran has made improving horsemanship the centerpiece of her administration. To enable this to happen Corcoran teamed up with Dr. Mark Revenaugh and the USEA Foundation to create the Poggio Horsemanship Fund in 2019.

“The Poggio Horsemanship Fund is an exciting start to helping us to educate riders, owners, grooms, and eventing enthusiasts to give their horses every benefit when it comes to improving their lives,” said Corcoran. “It will allow the USEA Foundation to provide funding for research, speakers, and anything else we may need to make the lives of all horses better.”

A common statement heard during horse activities is that good horsemanship has been declining in recent years. To reverse this trend better education is needed at all levels of the sport. Thanks in part to the USEA Foundation and the horsemanship fund, leading experts are being brought in for in-person, virtual, and live-streamed educational opportunities for all eventers. As an example, Dr. Revenaugh himself will serve as the keynote speaker during the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention. Corcoran is also bringing forward new initiatives to grow horsemanship education and better involve professional experts such as grooms, veterinarians, researchers, and coaches in those educational offerings. Many of these topics are slated to be discussed or approved during the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention December 9-12.

Since the creation of the Poggio Horsemanship Fund the community has raised over $30,000 in donations and we are committed to seeing this fund grow to the point that it can self-sustain in the years to come. The USEA Foundation is thankful to you, our donors, for your generous support over the years. We are also asking you, our friends, on this Giving Tuesday, to show your love of the sport and commitment to its long-term success by donating to the USEA Foundation. All donations are fully tax-deductible and will be gratefully received and recognized as we work to improve the well-being of our horses in the years ahead.

Please visit USEAFoundation.org and donate today to benefit eventing's future. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
