The day everyone has been waiting (and waiting!) for is finally here . . . show jumping day! Hurricane Florence threw a wrench in the plans for the eventing schedule at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) so show jumping was rescheduled from the traditional Sunday to Monday.

Eighty-three horses started the competition, 72 horses finished cross-country, and 70 horses presented at the final horse inspection with all passing.

With an extra day of rest before show jumping and only one rail separating first through seventh place the WEG Championship title is ripe for the picking.

Felix Vogg and Colero from Switzerland will be the first pair to tackle Alan Wade’s show jumping course at 10:00 a.m. William Coleman and Tight Lines will be the first U.S. representatives on course as the fourth to go. They will be followed by Boyd Martin and Tsetserleg and then Phillip Dutton and Z. Sitting in ninth place currently, Lynn Symansky and Donner will be the final U.S. pair to jump.

Nov 22, 2019 Convention

Top Five History Sessions at the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention

In less than a month, eventers will wrap up the year at the Sheraton Boston Hotel for the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention on Dec. 12-15. Sixty years ago, the USCTA (now known as the USEA) was formed after a meeting that took place at the 1959 Pan American Games in Chicago. From 1959, the USEA has grown from a small 20-member organization to an organization with thousands of members across the country of all levels and ages. History will come to life at the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention as the USEA will honor 60 years of the sport that we all know and love.

USCTA Throwback: Preparing for the Cross-Country

Start teaching your horse to jump by working over cavallettis first at the walk and then by trotting over them slowly. Then school him over a variety of small fences at the trot. Schooling over low fences will build the horse's confidence. Then do the same thing at a slow canter. Remember, never force your horse over high fences as he will lose his confidence.
