2. USEA Vintage Apparel

In honor of its 60th anniversary, the USEA brought back the iconic USCTA logo for an exclusive vintage apparel line. Three items will be available for purchase at the registration desk: a USCTA vintage t-shirt, and a USCTA vintage ¾ shirt, and a USCTA hat.

Get this apparel before they sell out! These exclusive items will not be restocked as they were only released for the USEA’s 60th anniversary year.


1. Eventing in America book

This year, every attendee will receive in their registration packets a special 60th anniversary book that tells the story of USEA and its members for the past 60 years. Over 80 pages long, the book is filled with fascinating pictures and facts that shine a light on the people and horses who have made up the sport.


Both the USEA vintage clothing line and Eventing in America will be available on the ShopUSEA after Convention for those who can't attend but would like to purchase these.

The USEA tuned into five-time Olympian, three-time World Equestrian Games rider, two Pan-American Games rider, and USEA ECP certified coach Karen O'Connor as she walked coaches and students at the USEA ECP Symposium through the basic positions for effective cross-country riding.
