The 2022 United States Eventing Association (USEA) Annual Meeting and Convention will be a special year celebrating eventing in the historical city of Savannah, Georgia. Taking place December 7-11, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Savannah Hotel, the USEA will also be celebrating the 8th Eventing Hall of Fame in true southern style.
Every December, the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention brings together dedicated USEA members and supporters to discuss, learn, and enjoy being surrounded by eventing enthusiasts. The USEA organizes multiple seminars in additions to committee meetings, open forums, and this year will also include the USEA’s Eventing Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
The USEA recommends making hotel reservations as soon as possible at this popular destination. The Hyatt Regency Savannah Hotel is a newly restyled hotel located on the Savannah River and in the heart of Savannah's historic district.

There are currently 47 eventing legends in the USEA’s Eventing Hall of Fame, and the 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 made a significant difference in the sport of eventing, and past Hall of Fame members have included Association presidents, volunteers, riders, founding fathers, course designers, officials, organizers, horses, horse owners, and coaches. The USEA’s Eventing Hall of Fame Class of 2022 will continue to be announced throughout the year.

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) created the USEA Classic Series to give riders a taste of the old school experience. These competitions preserve eventing’s history and allow riders at the Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels to take on the challenge of traditional long format events.
