About USEA Safety Coordinator Certification
In 2017, the USEA released an online test and certification for eventing safety coordinators. In accordance with United States Equestrian's (USEF) Rules for Eventing rule EV113 (4), all competitions are required to have a safety coordinator “who shall be responsible for the establishment and coordination of medical services.” The test itself derives its questions from the USEA Safety Coordinator Manual. While the certification is not currently mandatory, it is highly recommended that all safety coordinators at USEA competitions complete the test.

This month we’re going to begin a several-month series about defense and coping mechanisms. It’s common for these two terms to be used interchangeably, but they’re actually quite different. Coping mechanisms are mental strategies that resolve stressful events, while defense mechanisms are behaviors that attempt to avoid or hide from them.
While every story submitted to the USEA for the June Horse of the Month was unique and special, it was Teddy’s story that stood out.
