Updated 2020 Competition Calendar Released with Rescheduled Events

By Leslie Mintz - USEA Staff

The USEA Competitions, Calendar, and Rules Committee, along with the USEA Areas and the USEF Eventing Sport Committee, have been working hard to assist events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with rescheduling. There were 259 USEA recognized events on the calendar for 2020 and of those 82 have been impacted by COVID-19 so far with 23 receiving rescheduled dates and five new events being added to the calendar. The calendar may continue to change as events have to follow state and local regulations, but all rescheduled dates for events who put in requests have now been decided. Please refer to the USEA Competition Calendar for the most up-to-date information.

The current USEF/USEA suspension period is set to expire on May 31, 2020 after which events can run if the suspension period is not extended, and they are able to follow all local, state, federal, and CDC guidelines as well as the USEF COVID-19 Action Plan.

*This list has been updated to reflect cancellations to events that had previously rescheduled.

From the Magazine - Travers Schick: A Day In The Life

In 2002, at the age of 15, I was at my Aunt and Uncle’s farm in Maine while Tremaine Cooper was there building some cross-country jumps. I helped him build a trakehner, not realizing that this day would set the course for my future. A few weeks later he called asking if I could help him at Millbrook Horse Trials. From there I helped Tremaine during most of my school vacations and throughout the summers. After graduating high school I kept at it never looking back. I lived the gypsy lifestyle for about six years going from coast to coast and event to event. In 2013 my wife Kathryn and I settled down in Lexington, Kentucky. These days I spend roughly 60-75 percent of my time on the road preparing events or building private schooling areas. I’ve had the privilege of being involved with some really great events around the states and have cultivated many friendships all over the country. In 2019 I was asked to be a part of Team Evans Olympic cross-country building crew. As I write this I am on my third trip to Tokyo. Here’s a day in Tokyo . . .
