Calling all competitors, spectators, organizers, volunteers, and officials! The United States Eventing Association (USEA) Volunteer Committee has released a survey in efforts to improve the USEA Volunteer Incentive Program. The survey was created to seek feedback regarding interest in volunteer education opportunities.

The feedback gathered is extremely valuable to the USEA in planning opportunities for volunteers. Please take a few moments to respond to this short (three minutes or
less) Volunteer Survey.

The USEA would like to thank everyone for their participation!

About the Volunteer Incentive Program
In efforts to recognize the dedication, commitment, and hard work that volunteers put into eventing, USEA formed the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) in 2015. In 2017, an online management portal was designed for volunteers, organizers, and coordinators at EventingVolunteers.com (available as an app for iOS and Android). Volunteer incentives include national and area recognition, year­ end awards with ribbons, cash prizes, trophies, a top ten USEA Volunteer leaderboard, and a “Volunteer of the Year” award which is given to the volunteer who tops the leaderboard by accumulating the most volunteer hours over the USEA competition year.

The USEA would like to thank Sunsprite Warmbloods for sponsoring the Volunteer Incentive Program.

Eventers-Turned-Entrepreneurs: HOOFiTZ Leaves Its Mark

Eventers are brave, resilient, smart, strong minded, hard working, confident, goal-oriented, tough as nails, and ‘MacGyver-like’ problem solvers. So are entrepreneurs. So, it’s not surprising I took the path that has led me here.

OTTB Critique Presented by Athletux: Anderboch Flier

If there is one type of horse that has stood the test of time in the eventing community, it is the off-the-track Thoroughbred. While breeds such as the Irish Sport Horse and Warmblood types have grown in prominence, OTTBs still seem to outnumber them, and many riders at the upper echelons of the sport agree there is no horse better than a promising OTTB.
