Red Hills Horse Trials, scheduled for March 5-7, is excited to welcome a field of over 140 competitors to Tallahassee for the East Coast World Cup Qualifier and the first in the Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series. After a hiatus in 2009, Red Hills is expecting more than 25,000 spectators to view the Trials at the Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park and enjoy the many activities and exhibitions offered.
Red Hills was chosen to host the USEA Equine Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research Study. The study will be performed using horses in the Advanced divisions. The ultimate goal is to assess the cardiopulmonary effects on the horses and to identify factors that may influence their performance or safety issues.
In addition to the Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Study, Red Hills will also host the first candidates of the new Global Education Programme for Eventing Officials. Created and funded by the Federation Equéstré Internationale, (FEI), the project’s mission is to improve and align safety standards and support the sports’s officials in their work worldwide. This education initiative will play a major role in expanding and raising the quality and experience of Eventing officials worldwide.
Specifics of the "Fun & Education Formula" were provided to all at the Jim Wofford Clinic held on August 20 & 21 at the Horse Park in Woodside, northern California. Eager riders, auditors, and volunteers gathered for a much anticipated two-day clinic with the master bright and early Saturday morning.
This year a new class will be joining the 47 eventing legends currently in the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Eventing Hall of Fame. Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest honor awarded within the sport of eventing in the United States. Those invited to join the USEA's Eventing Hall of Fame have truly made a difference in the sport of eventing. Hall of Fame members have included past Association presidents, volunteers, riders, founders, course designers, officials, organizers, horses, horse owners, and coaches.

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
