The USEA Event Companion App was launched in late 2016 for iOS and Android devices to provide USEA members with easy, at-your-fingertips access to the USEA calendar of events, dressage tests, rules, news, and more. The app, now in its fifth year, has rolled out a new feature for users - push notifications are here!
Using the Event Companion App, members can search and sort events by name, level, or distance. Events can be “favorited” in the app, which will save the event's data to an easily accessible personalized list, allowing users to quickly access information for their most frequented events. Favorite events can also be stored offline, so the information can be accessed even when there is no reception.
Now, with the push notification feature, app users can receive notifications directly to their phones. There are two kinds of push notifications in place - general and location-specific.
General push notifications are available for membership renewal, USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, latest Eventing USA magazine releases, updates/change for favorited events, and reminders for favorited events before the start date.
Location-specific notifications are triggered when a user is within a given range for latitude and longitude designated for that notification. An example of this is if a user is at an event's location during the event, and an event wants to push a notification to attendees present on the show grounds. This feature requires that users have location permissions for the app turned on in their phone's general settings. Only the location-specific notifications are affected by this setting.
For instructions on how to turn on push notifications in the app and make sure that your location settings are properly adjusted, watch the videos or read the instructions below.

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
