The 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) are fast approaching, taking place this year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, August 27 – September 1. The AEC is a bucket list item for many eventers, so why not do something to commemorate the accomplishment?
The USEA is currently accepting submissions for the 2019 USEA AEC Event Program. Event programs are distributed to each AEC competitor, many of whom keep the program as a souvenir of their achievement. Purchasing an advertisement to be included in the AEC program is a great way to show appreciation for a fellow eventer or family member for their success this year!
For professionals with boarding, training, and coaching businesses, this is also an excellent opportunity to advertise to a wide demographic of eventers, as riders will travel from all across the country to compete at the AEC. Or perhaps you are coming to AEC to compete this year and have a business providing goods or services, equestrian-related or otherwise? Take advantage of this opportunity to advertise your business to your fellow eventers!
Advertising Agreements will be accepted through Monday, July 22 with creative due on Wednesday, July 31. Click here to download and fill out the program advertisement contract or contact Senior Director of Advertising Nancy Knight at (703) 669-9997 or [email protected] for additional information.
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).

USEA Area II announces its annual fundraising auction online is open for bidding! This fundraiser is over 20 years old and now well-known as the "Black Friday" for entries to ALL your favorite events! In typical years, the auction is held as a silent auction at the Annual Area Meeting, but because of COVID-19 restrictions, no in-person meeting will be held, so we're bringing the auction to everyone online this year.
The first USEA Pony of the Year award was presented in 2007 to the legendary Theodore O’Connor (Witty Boy x Chelsea’s Melody), a Thoroughbred/Anglo-Arab gelding ridden by Karen O’Connor and owned by the Theodore O’Connor Syndicate.
