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.
Eventing lost a wonderful man Sunday, June 23 as Donald Trotter passed away peacefully after battling a short illness. Trotter was a key contributor through his volunteerism to the sport of eventing. Together, Trotter and his wife, Pam Duffy, owned Sunsprite Warmbloods, breeding and placing many top horses.

When Lisa Chan started looking for another horse after she tragically lost her beloved off-the-track Thoroughbred, she immediately knew she wanted to look for another OTTB as her next horse. Her journey began at the track where she set a few guidelines for herself when it came to picking something out. “I wanted something smaller because I’m petite, and my barn owner said no mares,” Chan recalled.
