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.
