On Friday March 27, The USEA announced the extension of the suspension of recognition for competitions and activities under its direct jurisdiction held in the U.S. until May 3, 2020. This decision coincided with the announcement by U.S. Equestrian that all USEF-owned events, selection trials, training camps, clinics, and activities will be suspended until May 3, 2020.

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an extraordinary impact on all aspects of lives around the world, the USEA Board of Governors will meet again before the suspension period is lifted to consider the term of the suspension. The USEA has also fielded calls regarding the status of the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC).

At this time, the AEC is scheduled to take place August 25-30, 2020. “The USEA Board of Governors will be reviewing the qualification standards during the suspension of competition to ensure that the qualifications are achievable given the suspension,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “At the same time, the Board of Governors will ensure the highest standards of competition and safety are considered and met.” The USEA and the Board of Governors are closely monitoring the recommendations of the CDC as well as federal, state, and local guidelines, and will maintain communication to the membership with any decisions that arise.

The USEA staff continues to be available for our members. Please contact us with any questions. For questions about the USEA’s decisions please contact [email protected].

Change of Rein: Rosie Smith's Journey from Reining to the #2022AEC

Rosie Smith’s rose gold accented helmet matched her perfectly tidy bun of red hair as she took the third spot in the USEA Training Rider Championship at the 2022 USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) presented by Nurena Feeds. Every little detail came together while aboard her trusted partner of nine years: the 20-year-old Connemara Irish Draught named Seamus (by Corrcullen, RID). But Smith’s first jump, back when she was only 15 years old, wasn’t with an English saddle.
