The USEA is deeply saddened to share news of the passing of Katie Lindsay, who died peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her beloved dachshunds on November 23, 2020.

Katie was a well-known USEF Technical Delegate, FEI Steward, and the organizer of the Wayne DuPage and Maui Jim Horse Trials. She served as a member of the USEA Board of Governors and sat on many USEA and USEF committees. She was the first chair of the USEA Organizers Committee and was a frequent contributor to Eventing USA magazine.

Katie switched from hunters to eventing after attending the 1978 World Eventing Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park. Her first horse trials organizing job was just two years later in 1980. After retiring from international horse trials organizing in 2009, she continued to organize the Wayne Eventing Derby at Lamplight Equestrian Center in Illinios. She was also a longtime member of the Wayne DuPage Hunt.

Katie was awarded a USEA Governor's Cup in 1988 in recognition of her volunteer service to the sport of eventing and received the Wofford Cup in 2010 for her outstanding contributions to the sport.

She is survived by a niece and nephew, two spoiled-rotten dachshunds, and an enormous group of misfit friends.

Katie requested be cremated and there be no memorial service.

If you would like to make a donation in her honor, Katie's two favorite charitable organizations are the Midwest Dachshund Rescue (2023 Ridgewood Street, Highland, IN 46322) and the Illinois-Wisconsin Search & Rescue Dogs (P.O. Box 96, Woodstock, IL 60098).
