Area III held their annual Area Championships earlier this summer during the Stable View Summer Horse Trials and, as always, the competition was fierce! With championship classes offered in 12 divisions from Beginner Novice to Intermediate, the weekend was full of top-class competition. We caught up with some of the Champions from various divisions to discuss this year’s Area III Championship competition.
It was a busy weekend at the Poplar Place Farm Horse Trials in Hamilton, Georgia as the event hosted 11 different divisions for the Area III Championships. Riders needed to earn one first through fifth-place finish with no cross-country jumping penalties at one event during the qualifying period from May 15, 2019 to September 15, 2020 in order to be eligible to compete.
The “Cross The Border Summer Camp” is just around the corner. Organized by Area II and Area III Young Riders, all USEA members are welcomed, young and old.

For over 20 years the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) has been educating all levels of eventing instructors to confirm their knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they will continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime. The USEA is now shining the spotlight each month on some of the 300 ICP Certified Instructors.
