For the third year in the row, the Great Meadow International CICO3* in The Plains, Virginia, hosted the only leg of the FEI Eventing Nations Cup that takes place on North American soil. Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, and the United States were all represented within the 46 horse-and-rider field. After three years of chasing the top of the podium, Great Britain emerged victorious in the Nations Cup, followed by Canada in second place and the United States in third. Individually, Will Coleman and 9-year-old Off The Record rose to the top of the leaderboard after an influential day of cross-country. The USEA was there soaking up the beautiful weather and capturing all the action through the lens.
In this time of uncertainty, it can be difficult to know what steps to take next. Now that the spring season has been cut short, how do we adjust our goals for the fall season? And in the meantime, how do we manage the anxiety of not knowing what tomorrow will bring?
So far this year, three USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) competitions have taken place. From those three competitions, nine horses have earned qualifying scores for The Dutta Corp. USEA YEH Championships in October 2020. Out of the nine qualified horses, there are seven 5-year-old horses and two 4-year-old horses.
And just like that the spring season was gone . . . All the plans. All the excitement. All the goals. The calendar now has scratch marks on the days we were meant to travel and nothing more for the rest of the season can be filled in yet.
