The United States Eventing Association (USEA) will be hosting the Emerging Athletes 21 (EA21) program which will consist of three regional clinics in the summer, leading to a national camp in the winter. The regional clinics (east, central, west) will be open to USEA Young Rider program members aged 21 and under, and then selections will be made from the regional clinics and Young Riders will be chosen to attend the national camp the following winter.

The regional clinics will be held over two days with dressage and show jumping on the first day and cross-country on the second.

Host sites should; be attractive and presentable venues, have good footing in arenas and on cross-country, and have the ability to fit trailers for parking. The ability to offer stabling to clinic attendees would be desirable for the regional clinics.

Expressions of interest should be submitted in the form of a letter and should consist of no more than 800 words. All expressions of interest for an EA21 host site located in the United States should also include the following:

  1. Address of the proposed site(s), must be in the United States;

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

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.

Pragg understands the importance that volunteers play in the eventing community and makes sure to give whatever time she can back as a fair gesture.
