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!
My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.
Please always remain vigilant when it comes to sending any personal communications via email or text. Every year we receive reports of members and leaders of our sport receiving phishing attempts both online and by phone. These are often communications disguised as being sent from USEA staff or other leaders. As the years go on, the phishing attempts appear to be more directed and tailored.
Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
Following feedback from our membership to the rule change proposal for the USEF Rules For Eventing: Appendix 3 – Participation In Horse Trials, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Board of Governors voted to modify the rule change proposal, but still to recommend the establishment of rider licenses and increase Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MERs) to the regulating authority of the sport US Equestrian (USEF).
