With great regret, the Board of Millbrook Horse Trials (“MHT”) announces the cancellation of this year’s event, which was scheduled to be held August 4-7 in Millbrook, N.Y. This will be a disappointment to many, especially in our own community of Millbrook. As the only Area I eventing competition that offers all levels, from local beginners to the very top international competitors, MHT is an important summer fixture for competitors and spectators.

Despite the effects of the pandemic, last year’s event was particularly vibrant and well attended and we were expecting to expand on that this year. Unfortunately, however, we have not been able to come to a mutually acceptable agreement with one of the landowners on whom we rely to host the competition.

“The USEA has committed to assist Millbrook to make sure that this incredibly important event continues into the future,” said United States Eventing Association President Max Corcoran who grew up in USEA Area I. “We will work with the organizers of Millbrook to solve this and make sure that the event is viable.”

“We know this is a disappointing development for the Area I eventing community, as Millbrook H.T. is a longstanding and treasured event on the eventing calendar,” said Bill Moroney, Chief Executive Officer of US Equestrian. “We are committed to continuing our work with organizers to provide viable ways for competitions to recover following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and we hope to see Millbrook H.T. back on the calendar in 2023 and in the years to come.”

The Board of the Millbrook Horse Trials is grateful for the support we receive from sponsors, volunteers, officials, and many others each year. We are committed and hopeful that the Horse Trials will return to the eventing calendar for 2023.

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
