As a competitor, horse owner, trainer, and aspiring U.S. team rider, the competitions that I compete in are so important. I have been competing on the West Coast since I was eight years old and have watched the eventing scene evolve to the international level. Copper Meadows in Ramona, California has been a venue that has run since 2000, bringing another event to the West Coast. However, the recent changes made to the venue for the spring horse trials are second to none! Knowing that they have stepped up their game, I found a new desire to compete at every Copper Meadows event.
From the USEA Professional Horsemens' Council Welcome to the USEA Professional Horsemen's Council blog, where we will discuss ideas and address issues affecting all competitors. We look forward to your comments so please do not hesitate to get involved. We will be liaising with the organizers and officials in an attempt to improve the flow of information between all the parties that are so vital to the sport's success.
