Safety for horses and riders has always been a primary focus of the USEA as demonstrated by investment in safety studies in recent years. The USEA Online Auction will benefit frangible fence research being conducted by the USEA CrossCountry Safety Subcommittee. The Subcommittee is in the process of developing, testing, and validating with the FEI a system to test frangible fences to make sure they release according to FEI standards. Funds are required to purchase the pins, clips, weights, and other equipment required for this testing with the ultimate goal of making this system available to all course builders. Your help in meeting this goal through this online auction is greatly appreciated.
