The 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds have completed, and many dreams were made this past week and weekend. The AEC at Rebecca Farm garnered nearly 500 entries across AEC and festival divisions, and none of it would have been possible without the partnership of Rebecca Farm and Montana Equestrian Events. Thanks to their generous support, the USEA was able to provide AEC competitors with around $100,000 in prize money, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes and in-kind donations. Whether an AEC competitor placed 5th or won their division, they walked away with prize money and a plethora of prizes donated by the wonderful sponsors.

The USEA would like to especially thank AEC Presenting Sponsor, Nutrena Feeds, as they have been a long-time supporter of the AEC at both the Presenting and Title level in the past, and the USEA cherishes this partnership for all USEA members.

The USEA would also like to thank Adequan, who has been a long-time partner serving as the Title Sponsor of the Advanced division. The USEA and Adequan were able to offer the elite $60,000 Adequan USEA Advanced Final at the AEC this year, sending the winner home with a whopping $30,000 personalized check. Adequan is the “Official Joint Therapy Treatment of the USEA.”

Bates Saddles, the “Official Saddle of the USEA” has built an exciting partnership and stands as Platinum level sponsor of the AEC, as well as Title sponsor of the Preliminary divisions. Bates supported this year’s AEC with $25,000 worth of prizes for winners through fifth place in every division.

The USEA would also like to thank the Gold Level Sponsors: Parker Equine Insurance, Capital Square, Smartpak, and Standlee.

USEA's Tip Tuesday: Cross-Country Positions with Karen O'Connor

For seasoned and novice riders alike, it is always good to revisit the basics. Serving as the foundation for any eventer, the positions used on the cross-country course differ from those in the dressage or show jumping ring. The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
