Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, Georgia was one of two events hosting Adequan USEA Gold Cup divisions over Easter weekend, with 23 in the CIC3* division and another 10 in the Advanced division and several horses and riders making their final prep runs before heading to the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI4* later this month. The USEA was on the ground at Bouckaert Farm taking it all in, and you can too by looking through our lens. Want to read more about the competition? Click here for the USEA's coverage.
On this week's episode of the USEA Podcast, prepare to "winterize" your horse with tips from both a rider's perspective and a veterinarian's perspective. First, five-star eventer Emily Beshear shares her tips for helping your horse adjust to the cooler temperatures. Then, her husband Dr. Jeff Beshear provides tips from a vet's point of view on how best to care for your horse as the season changes.
It was a big ask for the 4- and 5-year-old horses competing in the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) East Coast Championships today as the famous row of Fair Hill flags were whipping in the wind and there was action in every corner of the main arena in Elkton, Md. With entry numbers in the 4-year-old division nearly doubled this year it was a fight against daylight to fit everyone in for the dressage and conformation phases.
Dressage took center stage on the blustery first day of The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Three-Day with both the CCI4*-L and CCI3*-L kicking off. Will Coleman and Dondante owned by Team Rebecca LLC and The Four-Star Eventing Group sit atop the leaderboard in the CCI4*-L division after earning a 33.8.
