Boulder, Colorado— August 24, 2021 - Equine Network is thrilled to have the support of the United States Eventing Association (USEA) for the inaugural Horse Week event brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim.
USEA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization committed to providing eventing enthusiasts with a competitive level suited to their individual skills. By assisting and educating competitors, event organizers, and officials as well as maintaining responsible safety standards and registering qualified competitions and clinics, the USEA offers strong and continuous training opportunities for an ever-expanding field of world-class eventing competitors. Just as importantly, the USEA provides a means for all riders, regardless of age or ability, to experience the thrill of eventing.
Just as the USEA serves to unify the eventing community, Horse Week is connecting people and businesses within the equine industry. This fall, the inaugural Horse Week– an equine-centric digital festival unlike any other– will debut on horseweek.tv. With help from title sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim, riders and horse lovers of every level and discipline will enjoy high-quality educational and inspiring content.
This week-long viewing experience will include profiles of incredible equine athletes, equine storytelling that celebrates the horse-human bond, and heartwarming tales of horse heroics. Riders will get valuable takeaways and advice from world-class trainers.
“We have pulled Horse Week together to celebrate the horse across the entire industry in this new, exciting and innovative way,” said Melissa Kitchen, Vice President of Marketing Services at the Equine Network. “Having the support of well-known associations like the USEA helps us to further unify and connect the horse community through Horse Week.”

If you were involved in equestrian sports at all last year, you probably noticed how COVID incentivized the industry to make a few changes in day-to-day business operations. The United States Eventing Association (USEA) caught up with the STRIDER leadership team to learn more about recent industry trends after their trip earlier this month to EQUITANA USA at the Kentucky Horse Park.
US Equestrian is pleased to announce two additional competitions approved by the USEF Board of Directors to host CCI4*-S, CCI3*-L, and Advanced level events during the 2023-2027 competition cycle under the new Eventing Calendar Process. The Florida Horse Park has been allocated the CCI4*-S, CCI3*-L, and Advanced levels on Week 16 and the Advanced level on Week 40.
If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
