The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to announce that the University of New Hampshire H.T. will continue to use ShowConnect at their upcoming spring event. The University of New Hampshire (UNH) Spring H.T. will take place from April 30 to May 1 in Durham, New Hampshire.
The UNH Spring H.T. offers Beginner Novice through Modified level and is a popular event in Area I. This will be the second time UNH H.T. utilizes ShowConnect as their only event software. They were the first official event to run ShowConnect last year at the UNH Fall H.T. on September 25 - 26, 2021.
ShowConnect is a community-based equestrian event management system that serves as a hub for all professionals involved in running equestrian-related shows and events. For more information on ShowConnect, please visit www.showconnect.org.
“We are excited to pioneer this new product and collaborating with the USEA and Jockey Club to develop this tool has been a great experience. Showcasing new tools and efficient technology is a way for us to align with the University's land-grant mission statement while helping to serve the greater eventing community. It's a win-win,” said Liz Johnson, show secretary of UNH H.T.
The UNH H.T. was founded in the early 1970s by students in the Animal Science degree program and UNH Horseman’s Club under the direction of Janet Briggs, a faculty member who was with the program for over 50 years. The UNH H.T. is now run by the Equine Studies program, more specifically, by students enrolled in ANSC 665 - Principles of Horse Trials Management.

The USEA would like to thank the organizing committee of the UNH H.T. and show secretary, Liz Johnson, for supporting ShowConnect!
ShowConnect has been designed with the future in mind. The system provides the critical features event organizers need to register, schedule, and score an event, but also provides many additional features to all sized events that would not be cost-effective by any other means. It’s designed to allow the flow of information and transactions securely in real-time to and from the people and organizations who interact with your event.
ShowConnect is not an online entry system but does allow for manual entries and imports from third-party entry systems, such as USEA Xentry.
ShowConnect provides one location with everything needed to run an event, state-of-the-art technology, enhanced scoring systems, real-time updates, easy accessibility, cost-effective, and support for organizers and secretaries when you need it most.
