This year’s USEA Annual Meeting & Convention was a special week in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was several days of celebration and education and none of it would have been possible without the support of the many loyal partners of the USEA and the Convention.

The USEA would first like to thank its Corporate Level sponsors and partners, who dedicate their time and resources to the USEA programs, events, and membership year-round, helping the sport of eventing thrive in the United States. Special appreciation to Adequan “The Official Joint Therapy Treatment of the USEA,” Bates “The Official Saddle of the USEA,” Nutrena “The Official Feed of the USEA,” Standlee Premium Western Forage “The Official Forage of the USEA, SmartPak “The Official Supplement Feeding System of the USEA,” Parker Equine Insurance “The Official Equine Insurance of the USEA, Saratoga Horseworks, “The Official Horse Clothing of the USEA,” and Mountain Horse “The Official Outerwear of the USEA.”

Nunn Finer returned as the Overall Leaderboard Sponsor, supporting and recognizing USEA members at all levels throughout the year. For the individual leaderboards, World Equestrian Brands sponsored the Rider of the Year, Bates Saddles sponsored Lady Rider of the Year and Mare of the Year, RevitaVet sponsored the Young Rider of the Year, Standlee Premium Western Forage sponsored the Horse of the Year, SmartPak sponsored the Stallion of the Year and Pony of the Year, and Sunsprite Warmbloods once again sponsored the Volunteer of the Year.

Thank you to all of these leaderboard sponsors who make these year-end awards possible! Saratoga Horseworks also provided specialty show coolers to the overall leaderboard winners, as well as a special package for the groom of the year and volunteer of the year. D.G. Stackhouse and Ellis Saddles also sponsored the Classic Series Training Three-Day drawing by providing a custom saddle to that winner.

Gallops Saddlery also supported the USEA Convention this year as a contributing sponsor, and they have been a long-time supporter of the USEA and the sport of eventing.

Rebecca Farm continued their support of the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention by graciously providing the continental breakfast for USEA members each morning. Their loyalty to the sport and communities around the United States have impacted countless individuals.

Lastly, the USEA’s Area X stepped up to support the USEA Year-End awards, by sponsoring the Awards Cocktail Hour, providing drink tickets to attendees. Thank you Area X for hosting the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention in your Area, in Albuquerque, New Mexico!

A Day in the Life with USEA Intercollegiate Member Hannah Warner

Hannah Warner wears many hats: student at the University of Kentucky, UK Eventing Team President, competitor, and head groom for Alexa Ehlers. Fitting in all of her roles and responsibilities into her day-to-day life can be a challenge, but it is a challenge that Warner finds rewarding. The college senior is working towards a business degree through UK's online business program, so Warner is able to get creative with her schedule to pursue all of her academic and eventing related goals.
