The USEA Omnibus has gone green! As many of you already know, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) has converted the printed Omnibus to be exclusively online. Now, at the click of a button, all the information that was once in the printed Omnibus is available within seconds through the online calendar. The online calendar is available on www.useventing.com or the USEA Event Companion App, which is available for iOS and Android phones.
Created in 2016, the USEA Event Companion App has many unique features including the latest USEA eventing news, a personal profile feature, a ‘favorite’ event option, entry information on every USEA recognized competition, and can give you directions to the event from your current location. “The USEA Event Companion was created to quickly provide important information that you need while you plan, prepare, and participate at a USEA competition,” commented Robert Winter, USEA Director of Information Systems Management.
Users can customize the online calendar within the app by searching events either by name, date, or distance from their current location. The ‘favorite’ event feature allows users to favorite an event which will save to a personalized list. The ‘favorite’ events can be stored offline and allows users to quickly access information when they are out of network.
Looking for an event with a Modified division? On the USEA Event Companion App, it allows users to customize their search by level. The search by level option has Beginner Novice through Advanced, international competitions, YEH and FEH competitions, and Hylofit USEA Classic Series Three-Day Events. For Modified, go to the search button on the top right-hand corner and click the box ‘M’ and this will then give you every event that has a Modified division on their calendar listing.
For questions or concerns about the USEA Event Companion App, please contact USEA Support Services at [email protected].
