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.
Chants of “War Eagle” were heard from end to end of the White Oak cross-country course as the overnight leaders and defending champions from Auburn University tore between the red and white flags Saturday to remain atop the leaderboard of the 2023 Intercollegiate Eventing Championship at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).
The last three years have been a time of great change throughout the country for homes, businesses and industries. Rising costs of living, shrinking of assistance and changes in demographics have affected so much of our world, and that includes the equine industry. However, not all of the changes are easy to identify. This is why the American Horse Council (AHC), together with the U.S. Equestrian Federation, has kicked off what could be one of the biggest studies in more than 50 years with the 2023 National Economic Impact Study (EIS) for the equine industry.
Twenty-three teams from 13 colleges and universities have traveled far and wide for the seventh annual USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championship held at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina.
If you have been involved at a higher level with the USEA, you probably recognize the names of the two ladies that spearhead all of the efforts of the USEA’s Programs, Partnerships, and Marketing department: Kate Lokey, Director of Programs and Marketing, and Kaleigh Collett, Marketing Coordinator, but a new member of this team has also joined the USEA staff in Heather Johnson, Programs and Inventory Assistant. If you have considered advertising with the USEA or are involved in the USEA’s Young Event Horse, Emerging Athletes U21, New Event Horse, Adult Riders, Young Riders, Classic Series, or Grooms programs, you probably have or most likely will interact with one of these staff members.
