Will you be attending the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event (LKR3DE)? Then be sure not to miss out on the many educational opportunities being offered by LandSafe! LandSafe has teamed up with the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) and Event Riders Association of North America (ERA of NA) to bring you The Education Tent.
Top riders, grooms, and horsemen will be offering free lectures and demonstrations on a variety of topics, including why an ICP instructor is for you! Equine topics will range from preparing for dressage to cross-country aftercare. There will also be discussions on leading safety products, signings from top riders, and a Q and A session after cross-country on Saturday. There will be something going on at The Education Tent every hour of every day! Stop by to get your picture taken on the LandSafe simulator which will show you dropping into the Head of the Lake.
The Education Tent is designed as an outreach program for parents and riders to have a place to go to get information from top equestrians/trainers. The Education Tent will be located with 'The Hill' vendors directly off of Nina Bonnie Lane in between the Rolex stadium and cross-country course.
In addition to all of the activities taking place in The Education Tent all weekend long, LandSafe is offering a clinic during LRK3DE! The clinic will take place Thursday, April 25 and Friday, April 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. To sign up for the LandSafe clinic, click here. Don’t forget that LandSafe has rebates available for current USEA members through the generosity of the USEA Education Grant!
If you were involved in equestrian sports at all last year, you probably noticed how COVID incentivized the industry to make a few changes in day-to-day business operations. The United States Eventing Association (USEA) caught up with the STRIDER leadership team to learn more about recent industry trends after their trip earlier this month to EQUITANA USA at the Kentucky Horse Park.
US Equestrian is pleased to announce two additional competitions approved by the USEF Board of Directors to host CCI4*-S, CCI3*-L, and Advanced level events during the 2023-2027 competition cycle under the new Eventing Calendar Process. The Florida Horse Park has been allocated the CCI4*-S, CCI3*-L, and Advanced levels on Week 16 and the Advanced level on Week 40.
If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
