#GivingTuesday is a worldwide day of giving fueled by the power of collaboration and social media. Celebrated following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday and taking place this year on Tuesday, December 3, #GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving by tuning the minds of the world community towards donating to the charities nearest and dearest to their hearts and minds.
As part of its purpose, the USEA Foundation works tirelessly to identify issues facing our sport, especially those that impact our horses and riders. This year, the USEA Foundation is asking for your support of the newly introduced Poggio Horsemanship Fund which was founded under the leadership of incoming USEA President Max Corcoran and Dr. Mark Revenaugh. The fund will support research into a number of topics focused on maintaining soundness, conditioning programs, equine management protocols, equine transportation, nutrition, and more.
“The Poggio Horsemanship Fund is an exciting start to helping us to educate riders, owners, grooms, and eventing enthusiasts to give their horses every benefit when it comes to improving their lives,” said Corcoran. “It will allow the USEA Foundation to provide funding for research, speakers, and anything else we may need to make the lives of all horses better.”
If you have already donated this year, thank you so very much - your help is appreciated more than you know.

On the day when the world turns its thoughts to giving, please consider making a donation in support of the USEA Foundation Poggio Horsemanship Fund, or any of the other USEA programs. In one way or another, these programs touch everyone in the eventing community and we need your help to ensure that these programs will continue to contribute in a meaningful way to the eventing community in the coming year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyalty and commitment to the sport.
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season from all of us at the USEA and the USEA Foundation!
