The Go Getters did exactly that in the Beginner Novice Adult Team Championship (ATC) at the 2019 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nutrena Feeds. The Go Getters, from Area III, finished on a cumulative score of 100.0.

Beth Allen and Remastered (Master Huntsman x Panache), her 16-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, were fifth in the Beginner Novice Rider Championship on a 32.4.

“It was a really nice way to meet other adults that compete in our area – people that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet,” said Allen. “It was really fun just to get to know everyone and have them cheering for you. I think that Cindy, our coordinator, did a great job putting it all together.”

“We ended up in a group text and we went out and watched each other’s rides and that was really fun,” continued Allen. “I could hear them cheering for me and for Area III. It was a lot of fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

Lori Tucker and her 9-year-old Clydesdale Paisley finished seventh in Beginner Novice Master Amateur Championship on 32.1.

Colleen Cohill and Hotshot, her 9-year-old Warmblood gelding, placed 10th in the Beginner Novice Amateur Championship on a 35.5.

Billy Jackson and his 9-year-old Thoroughbred gelding Ralph Lauren (Council Member x Across the Creek) scored a 57.3 to finish in 29th place in the Beginner Novice Master Amateur Championship.

About the USEA Adult Team Championships

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 presented by Nutrena Feeds. 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!

The USEA would like to thank The Chronicle of the Horse, Smartpak, FITS, Gumbits, and Ovation for sponsoring the USEA Adult Team Championships.

Show Jumping Building Seminar Kicks off USEA Annual Meeting & Convention With a Wealth of Information

Show jumping: there is so much more to it than just setting out a set number of jumps in a ring. Professional course designers Marc Donovan and Chris Barnard broke down the fine details that come with show jumping course design during the Show Jumping Building Seminar which kicked off the 2022 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention on Wednesday, December 7th in Savannah, Georgia. With an in-classroom session discussing rules, regulations, theory, and more, followed by a practical hands-on course building session held at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Ronald C. Waranch Equestrian Center where participants were able to put all of the morning’s education to work, this year’s Show Jumping Course Building Seminar was full of useful information for both eventing lovers and course design hopefuls alike.
