Following the cancellation of the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event for 2022, US Equestrian will open a one-week bid process to fill the date on the 2022 U.S. Eventing Calendar. Per the 2022 U.S. FEI Eventing Calendar Policies and Procedures, applications to host the CCI4*-L level during the 2022 competition season are accepted by invitation only.
The bid process opens today, October 21, and closes October 29 at midnight EST for one competition on the East Coast to run the CCI4*-L level on Week 19 of the U.S. Eventing Calendar, May 17-19, 2022. As this date has traditionally also held the CCI4*-S, CCI3*-L, and CCI3*-S levels, the USEF requests that potential bid applicants also consider hosting these levels.
The bid application is located here on the USEF Eventing Calendar Process webpage. The application must be complete in order to be considered; applications should be submitted via email to [email protected] by the deadline.
This will be a one-year allocation. Please note, that the bid is subject to the mileage process as outlined in GR3.
Bids will be considered against the criteria in Annex A of the 2022 Policies and Procedures by the USEF Eventing Sport Committee for recommendation to the International Disciplines Council for final approval by the Board of Directors. All FEI competitions are subject to FEI approval.

There were surprisingly few shakeups to the top of the leaderboards Friday at the MARS Bromont CCI, but the incredibly close scores leave no margin for error heading into Saturday’s exciting cross-country phase across all five levels.
Tomorrow, the first of five regional clinics for the USEA Emerging Athletes U21 (EA21) Program kicks off in the central region of the country in Benton, Louisiana, at Holly Hill Farm. Throughout the summer, the remaining clinics on the East and West Coast will follow. At each clinic, 12 hand-selected riders will participate in a two-day clinic led by USEA Eventing Coaches Program (ECP) coaches. The purpose of the EA21 program is to create a pipeline for potential team riders by identifying and developing young talent, improving horsemanship and riding skills, and training and improving skills and consistency. The intention is to provide young athletes with access to an added level of horsemanship and riding skills to further their training and skill development with greater consistency.
After the first day of competition, Canadian Olympian Colleen Loach and her horse FE Golden Eye lead an international field in the CCI4*-L division of the MARS Bromont CCI.
