“We at The Chronicle of the Horse salute adult amateurs for managing to balance work, family, and riding. We’ve been proud supporters of the USEA’s Adult Team Championships since their inception more than 20 years ago. Since the ATC have joined the USEA American Eventing Championships the joint competition represents a wonderful opportunity for the Chronicle to connect with eventers from across the country who are all working toward excellence,” said Mollie Bailey of The Chronicle of the Horse.
The Chronicle of the Horse published its first edition in 1937 and remains the industry leader in providing news coverage of national and international sport horse competitions. This weekly publication provides thorough results, compelling features, and thought-provoking commentary, both in print and online. The Chronicle of the Horse acts as the heart and soul of the sport horse community and an information hub for those who desire to live the active equestrian lifestyle.
“The Chronicle of the Horse is one of the best equestrian publications in the world, and we are extremely grateful for their long-term dedication to the AEC and ATC. It is the core supporters of our sport like The Chronicle of the Horse that help keep eventing viable and we love their dedication to our adult amateur athletes,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk.

The USEA Adult Team Championships, which debuted in 2014, is the capstone event for the USEA Area Adult Team Challenges, providing adults the chance to compete as a team and represent their Area of the country in a friendly and fun environment. Historically, adult riders had three regional Team Challenges in which to compete with fellow adults in a team environment, with the locations changing each year. In 2013, the USEA Adult Rider Coordinators voted to move to support Adult Team Challenges taking place in all 10 Areas across the country, with the finale being the ATC at the USEA American Eventing Championships. Each Area can send up to eight teams from Beginner Novice through Preliminary level to the ATC. Adult Riders know how to have a good time, and there is no doubt that they bring an increased level of excitement and camaraderie to the AEC!

In the show jumping phase, where a ribbon can be won or lost based on a fraction of a second, it is important to understand the rules that determine how time is kept. After reviewing the rules concerning time and other show jumping penalties, one should also examine the rules that outline the faults incurred for each of the different types of penalties.
Sue Ockendon, organizer of the MARS Bromont CCI Three-Day Event and the FEI Eventing Nations Cup announced today that the event has decided to consider dates further along the calendar. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for Bromont to confirm that it would be possible for competitors to travel on August 15-18.
There were 14 USEA recognized events that took place in June, the first month back from the suspension of the eventing calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While no one finished with a score in the teens, Erin Walker and Zydeco Nights came very close. By finishing on a score of 20.0, Walker and Zydeco Nights won the Novice Rider division at the Chattahoochee Hills H.T. on Sunday, June 28.
