The USEA was lucky enough host the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships Presented by Nutrena Feeds at Rebecca Farm this year on August 30 – September 4 as well. The Advanced, Modified and Beginner Novice levels were offered at the AEC alongside the national levels that are typical run at Rebecca Farm, giving many participants a unique opportunity to compete at this facility for the first time. Throughout the week, USEA members raved about the beauty and top-class competition that the venue offered, with many getting their first taste of the magic of eventing at Rebecca Farm.
“We can’t thank the Broussard’s enough for their continued support,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “Their commitment to three-day eventing has been unfaltering for many years and the fact that they stepped up to host the 2022 AEC on top of their support of the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention proves that yet again. If you haven’t had the chance to experience Rebecca Farm, make sure to book your trip now for The Event in 2023!”

If a horse doesn’t have a proven eventing record, those interested in finding their next eventing partner must use other criteria to evaluate a horse’s potential in the sport. Understanding and appraising a horse’s conformation can be a way to look into a crystal ball for that horse’s future suitability for eventing.
