Through the Lens: The Fork and WEG Test Event

In July of 2016, Bromont pulled out from hosting the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) and in November the FEI announced the Tryon International Equestrian Center as the new hosts. This timeline gave Tryon less than two years to pull together what will be the fourth largest sporting event in the world in 2018. The Mill Spring, N.C. facility is now under construction around the clock, but that didn’t stop them from hosting the WEG Eventing Test Event in the first week of April. The Fork CIC3*, an Adequan USEA Gold Cup event, served as the test event and it was Phillip Dutton and Z who took the top honors. Can’t remember what happened? Get a refresher by re-reading the dressage day 1, dressage day 2, cross-country, horse inspection, and show jumping coverage, and scroll down to relive the week through the lens.

A Day in the Life of a USEA Collegiate Member

It’s back to school for the USEA Collegiate Members! Last week several eventing teams described what it was like going back to school amidst COVID-19, and this week eventing teams participated in the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Video Contest. The videos submitted represent a day in the life of a USEA Collegiate Member. The most creative video would win its own social media post on the USEA social media accounts.

Now On Course: Jennarose Ortmeyer Shoots for the Stars

My road to success is a bit different and quite a bit longer than most. Hi, my name is Jennarose Ortmeyer. I am 24 years old and my eventing journey started three years ago in the summer of 2017. Originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, I moved to North Carolina in June of 2017 seeking to further my career. I was a professional in the hunter/jumper world then and I hadn’t the faintest idea of how drastically my life was about to change.

Smith Wins CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S; Turner Takes CCI2*-S at Twin Rivers Fall International

The CCI4*-S had an exciting shake-up of the top placings to finish out the International divisions at the Twin Rivers Fall International. It was Tamie Smith and Passepartout, an 11-year-old German Sport Horse gelding (Pasco x Preschel) owned by Tamie's daughter Kaylawna Smith-Cook, who came out on top with the fastest cross-country time of the group. Ruth Bley’s 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding Danito (Dancier x Wie Musik) took second. Erin Kellerhouse and her own Woodford Reserve rounded out the top three.
