In honor of the USEA’s 60th anniversary, the USEA will be unlocking their video time vault to play continuous film at the 2019 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention. The designated film room will be in room Liberty C on the second floor of the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

Take a break from meetings and unwind with film. Convention attendees can watch a variety of footage including the 1976 Montreal Olympics where U.S. eventing took home the team gold with Tad Coffin winning individual gold and J. Michael Plumb winning individual silver; or the 2004 Athens Olympics, the first Olympics with the short format, where U.S. eventing earned team bronze with Kim Severson winning the individual silver medal. These moments, that have helped create the story of U.S. eventing, will be played on the big screen for attendees.

Each day will cover a different time period and there will be a combination of USEA video archives and equestrian-inspired blockbuster films.

Smith Swaps Horses, but Maintains Standings at Jersey Fresh International CCI4*-L

While her two horses swapped places for first and second after cross-country, Tamra Smith maintained both the lead and second place with two clear rounds and minimal time faults at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event Presented by BW Furlong and Associates and Zoetis. The 16-year-old Hanoverian mare En Vogue (Earl x Laurena) is just a little more experienced than her barn mate Danito, also owned by Ruth Bley, so she was also a little quicker around the big, challenging course that twisted and turned through the Horse Park of New Jersey. En Vogue leads on a 27.1 and Danito is second with 31.9, with Boyd Martin maintaining third place with the 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding Luke 140 (Landos x Omega VI), owned by the Luke 140 Syndicate.
