Updating your profile and horse’s profile on USEA online services is paramount for the USEA to accurately report information. The USEA database is where show organizers go to find information on horse and rider combinations, which means if it’s incorrect in the USEA database, it will also be incorrect at events. The USEA strongly encourages everyone to make sure their profile and their horse’s profile is complete and accurate.

Always remember to ‘Love the horse first, become a member second.’
