This year the USEA will host an Annual Meeting & Convention unlike any other. The 2020 USEA Annual Meeting will be held virtually and participants can attend the meeting from the comfort of their own home. The 2020 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention was originally set to take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico but, due to COVID-19, the in-person meeting was postponed and replaced by a unique virtual experience.
The centerpiece of the USEA Virtual Annual Meeting & Convention will be the Annual Meeting of Members and the Keynote Address taking place on Saturday, December 12, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time. This event will be free to join with the only requirement being that you must be a registered 2021 USEA member (at any level) to participate.
Much like the week of convention, the USEA will also offer exclusive educational content and interactive webinars on the USEA website in the days leading up to the annual meeting. This content will be open to the public. USEA members will also be able to participate in open committee meetings and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the workings of the Association.
The educational and informative sessions offered at convention typically require a registration fee, but this year it will be entirely free of charge. Make sure to mark the calendars as you won’t want to miss this unique opportunity.

Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
Following feedback from our membership to the rule change proposal for the USEF Rules For Eventing: Appendix 3 – Participation In Horse Trials, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Board of Governors voted to modify the rule change proposal, but still to recommend the establishment of rider licenses and increase Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MERs) to the regulating authority of the sport US Equestrian (USEF).
